The description of what you want doesn't quite make sense to me.
It would seem you can use wildcards to select the set of driectories=20
to move... like:


=2E..but need to know more to understand about what you are after.

- Can you run "find -type d" on one of the two servers and trim down
  the results to be an example... flag what you want and don't want
  some way.

I would also recommend using rsync depending on the details.=20
