Exactly, rsync should map user and group names if the demon on the 
destination runs as root. But this does not work. I tested it with an 
group named test with gid 1000 on server #1 and gid 1001 on server #2.
It works if rsync is used via ssh like this
rsync -vv -XAavz -e ssh root at server2:/var/lib/samba/private/sysvol/ 
Seems to be an issue with rsync causing trouble with sysvols.
