           Summary: user id mapping stopped working with 3.0.0pre10
           Product: rsync
           Version: 3.0.0
          Platform: x86
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P3
         Component: core
        AssignedTo: wayned at
        ReportedBy: brian at
         QAContact: rsync-qa at

I'm running the daemon natively (no ssh/rsh) on several suse linux boxes of
various versions and cpu types (and freebsd and sco open server) and all use a
config file that runs rsyncd as root and all boxes talk to each other. rsync
versions range from 2.6.6 to 3.0.0pre9 and up to 3.0.0pre9 everything has been

3.0.0pre10, when acting as the server, fails to do user id mapping.

Any version client (2.6.9, 3.0.0pre1, 3.0.0pre9, 3.0.0pre10), sending to, or
receiving from, a 3.0.0pre10 server, transferring files ownded by a user that
exists on both boxes but with different uid's, the files do not get the user id
 translated on the receiver.

Any version client (including 3.0.0pre10), sending to, or receiving from, a
3.0.0pre9 or lower server, works.

That is, the error is dependant on the property of 3.0.0pre10 being in daemon
mode. Doesn't matter what version the client is, and doesn't matter which side
is the sender or the receiver of a file. All that matters is, if the server is
3.0.0pre10, then uid mapping doesn't happen.
