Utility:  cp

for years I have used the following command to mirror data to a parallel server:

cp -auvf /mnt/server1  /data1

this works without human intervention.

after upgrading my backup server to RH7.1 the behavior has changed.

the --force (-f) parameter no longer forces the copy of updated files over the pre-existing files without prompting.

from my testing, -f parameter no longer works. No matter what I do no files can be over-writtien without answering "y" to the prompt.

What gives-    mcm
