My question is, when rsync creates the new directories, does it respect user and group all the way along or must we wait for the end of the rsync to find out?Issue the command 'man rsync' and take a look what the -a switch does. It acts as if many other switches were issued. Take a look at each, specially -p. Good luck. -- *Marcio Merlone*
Hi Hi Marcio, hi everyone Yes. I was missing the -a switch: rsync -auzv source destinationworks fine but I found that the owner and group are not synced until the last moment. Impatience perhaps.
