I'd like to know if there is a way to set the ownership/group/permission
when you are transfering files from a Windows clients to a Linux rsync
I've tried following configurations, and none of them work.
rsync -av --owner=test -g MyFolder 192.168.100.1::backup/test
rsync -av --owner=500 -g MyFolder --numeric-ids 192.168.100.1::backup/test
(500 is numeric id for user "test)
Is it possible that you can setup a rsync server that will preserve the
ownership/group from a Windows clients? Or, is it possible to run rsync
client so that when the server stores the files, it sets to the user/group
specified at client's rsync option?
So far, Linux to Linux rsync has no problem at all. The Windows clients
(NT and Win2000) are using cygwin1.dll v1.3.10 and rsync 1.5.4.
Any suggestions will be appreciated.
Thank you very much,
