ACL or file locking issue?


Is this an ACL or file locking issue?

Trying to copy a registry file in a 'bash' shell
as a privileged user (whoami /priv appears below) yields:

(root's prompt is '#')
# cd /cygdrive/c/winnt/system32/config
# cp SAM /var/tmp
cp:'SAM.exe' and '/var/tmp/SAM' are the same file

I can reproduce this behavior on a plain file, eg:

# cd /var/tmp
# echo "testing" > foo
# chmod 770 foo
# chown Administrator foo
# chgrp SYSTEM foo
# cp foo bar
cp: 'foo.exe' and 'bar' are the same file

File must be mode=(at least)440,uid=Administrator,gid=SYSTEM to see

Changing file modes, user and/or group ownership on SAM however doesn't
allow access.

All replies much appreciated.
