failed to preserve ownership operation not permitted

#Hi i have written one backup script in linux workstation.The backup script will do zipping files and moved to the backup directory(i,e /net/ts-bcn/sb_backup/sand).

#So while moving zipped files to the backup directory i am getting some error like this

#error:mv:failed to preserve ownership /net/ts-bcn/sb_backup/sand operation not permitted.

#i am getting the file owner and group owner as nfsnobody for the zipped files.

Welcome to LQ!

You haven't told us your distro, or posted your "backup script".

Why not?

So I do not think anybody can help you until you provide some more information.
