Copy directory structure from Solaris preserving all the permissions and links

view story

http://serverfault.com – I am looking to copy a directory structure with Files, I am not looking for content a 0 byte file will do. I just need to copy the directory tree with 0 byte files and links preserving the properties of the file like- Permission, Owner, Group, ACL. How do I copy / create a tar ball/ rsync with Directories and 0 byte files with same ACL's, permissions, User, group and others. (HowTos)
