RSYNC - file ownership


Hi, I've been using rsync to copy files/dirs from remote servers (in our training centres) to my master server in head office for "backup" and have just noticed that ownerships are changing - no doubt due to the original owner not existing on the master server (UID/GID not matching) ! Is there a way around this, would the -o switch help ? At the moment I'm using -avz switches.

Thanks

Mike

man rsync

-p, --perms preserve permissions
-o, --owner preserve owner (root only)
-g, --group preserve group
-D, --devices preserve devices (root only)
-t, --times preserve times

use the -p and -t options
