I have a Network Storage Device mounted as smbfs. When I transfer data
using rsync, the permission of files transferred changes automatically
to 502.501. 
I couldn't even issue a command chown. The error message said that
"changing ownership of `thisfile': Operation not permitted

Can someone please advise me to get around with this problem?

Best Regards and Thanks,
