Oh I see misunderstanding then. So what you propose is
basically a chown of the directory in question?
I tried the following
Laptop1 to disk: disk is mounted with uid=1000
rysnc -auvzx /home/oub/dir /media/disk/oub (id=1000)
from disk to Laptop2 disk is mounted with uid=1000 but user
is uid 1002
rsync -auvzv /media/disk/oub/dir oub at localhost:/home/oub (id=1002)
Files get copied without problems, having now id=1002 and
Edit hte files and Work... work
try to copy back to the disk
rsync -auvzv /home/oub/dir oub at localhost:/media/disk/oub
Now it fails, even as
sudo rsync -auvzv /home/oub/dir oub at localhost:/media/disk/oub
So it seems the only possibility is to have the same uid on
Ps I had to add
sshd: localhost 127.0.0.1 : allow
Otherwise ssh does not work.
