I'm setting up a 2nd unraid server and wanting to copy everything from some folders to one unraid server to another. Tried a few cp commands from the command line and cant get it to work. Was wondering if anyone know of a docker with a desktop UI that would let me do that easier vs command line?

You can use Midnight Commander (mc) from terminal or you can try the Krusader docker container. I use Krusader but make sure you take the time to configure its template with your mount paths and of course, follow the Krusader setup guidelines.

You can also use the 'unassigned devices' plug in.   It will let you mount an SMB share, so basically its like mapping a network drive in Windows.  Be sure to launch unraid server#1 (the one with unassigned devices plugin) in GUI mode.  Make an SMB share on server#2, then go to server#1 and mount your new share.   Then in the bottom left corner you will find MC, Midnight commander.  It will happily copy files around from one machine to the next.
