Apologize for the confusion. I am aware the module name is not
duplicated on the destination.
So it would copy "/tools/netegrity/siteminder/" to destination
~jon/test/siteminder with permission like below.
drwxr-xr-x 3 cdemgr cdemgr 4096 Apr 5 2005 siteminder
The "/tools/netegrity/" permission is like above.
Still I just don't understand why it changes the ~jon/test ownership to
'cdemgr'too. Where did I misconfigure or assume?
