What does rsync do with permissions?
Using rsync -auvP ./* targetMachine:/targetDir
I sometimes get an error/warning such as:
chown GENERO/uk/reinsure/prod/rel/dbmodify.4gl : Operation not permitted
The source file has owner/group stevet:dev and the target stevet:users
The files are being rsync'd as user 'fyl' - fyl belongs to both dev and
The 'oddity' is that if the command rsync -auvPn is used to check
before doing the actual copy, then the error/warning is not given - ie
-auvPn potentially says that nothing needs to be done, but then the
actual copy statement comes up with the chown message.
