I have a system that is unslung to a memory stick on disk 2. Disk 1 is
a large data hard drive which I use for many things including backup
of disk 2. I have mounted disk 1 to /share/media01. When I do an rsync
across I frequently get errors like the following:
rsync: chown "/share/media01/backup/etc/sysconfig" failed: Operation
not permitted (1)
As I understand it these errors occur because when root accesses the
share on disk 1 they only have guest permissions. I created the
directory 'backup' from the command line and it says guest is the
owner of the directory. Given that the files I am rsyncing are all
owned by root I really need to set the 'backup' folder on disk 1 to be
owned by root.
I have tried using:
chown -R root backup
But it won't le me:
chown: backup: Operation not permitted
I'm a bit stuck as it seems the shares are created via the linksys
interface but the root user is only accessible through ssh.
Can someone help me set the permissions so that root has full access
of disk 1 and can create, delete, and own files and folders as
themselves and not as guest.
