The important part of duplicating the owner and group info is what
permissions the receiving rsync is running as, and I believe you said
that the Linux box is the one receiving the data, so it needs to be
running as root.  It works best if you're running the receiver on the
same machine that has the destination disk mounted (writing to a remote
samba share may even restrict root's permissions).
