Mmmhhh the symbolic links would not be copied it means an example for better
If in a directory would exists:
And to this directory a link
/opt/directory -> /opt/directory1-2-3-4
And now I would give a copy command like:
cp -Rp /opt/directory* /ohterlocation/
It would copy the stuff but after looking to the /otherlocation dir I would
see two directorys:
And the dir /opt/directory which should be a symbolic link is not anymore a
symbolic link it is now a real directory!

I cited my copy of the standard so it might be that your version of Solaris
is not fully posix compatible?
Can you try if your "cp -Rp" will copy symbolic links?
If so, you could leave the "-P" out.
