Having a problem, and not really finding an answer.
>From the source server I'm using:
$ rsync -av -e ssh /home/ username@destination_ip:/home/
and when I used --dry-run it seemed to work fine. When I do it for real,
every file has:
"failed to set permissions on folder/filename : Operation not permitted"
I did a google search, and found a comment abount needing read/execute
permissions on the source files. So I did:
$ chmod a+rx -R /home/*
and tried again...same thing.
I'm tempted to try to run it at the source as root, but that error has me
concerned...like it's trying to change something on the source.
