           Summary: rsync fails on chown command.
           Product: rsync
           Version: 2.6.4
          Platform: PA-RISC
        OS/Version: HP-UX
            Status: NEW
          Severity: major
          Priority: P3
         Component: core
        AssignedTo: wayned at samba.org
        ReportedBy: jeff.huff at snapon.com
         QAContact: rsync-qa at samba.org

When using rsync to copy files within the same server, to a different structure,
have been getting the following errors:
rsync: chown "/newexport/home/huffjl/dmesgout" failed: Invalid argument (22)

The original file looks like:

-rw-r--r--   1 nobody     sys             29 Sep  5  export/home/huffjl/dmesgout

The resultant file looks like this, if copied at all:

----------   1 root       sys             29 Sep  5  export/home/huffjl/dmesgout

After a "quantity" of these errors, rsync just stops, no errors, no messages.

The primary command used was:
rsync -ax /export/home/huffjl/ /newexport/home/huffjl
