I don't know if my request is clear...sorry for my bad english...
I just need to preserve ID...I don't want rsync to convert id to name
group because it takes the name group of the server instead of my
I run rsync command in local machine in root, the deamon is run in
root too, in rsyncd.conf in my module I set gid=root, uid=root...I
have tried --numeric-ids parameter...and nothing...
So if you know another tool which do that...
