Desktop PC running Manjaro
Server1 running Ubuntu Server 16.04
Server2 running Ubuntu Server 18.04
Server1 is my trusty old box. Among other tasks it runs Deluge for some torrenting. Torrents are downloaded to /mnt/data/torrents which is owned by deluge:deluge
Server1 is running low on space so I’ve copied /mnt/data/torrents to /mnt/data/torrents on my new server2.
On server2 I’ve created user deluge and given ownership of /mnt/data/torrents to deluge:deluge
On server1 I’ve renamed /mnt/data/torrents to /mnt/data/torrents.backup and then I’ve mounted server2:/mnt/data/torrents as /mnt/data/torrents on server1
On my desktop pc I’ve also mounted server2:/mnt/data/torrents
If I do an ls -l of torrents on server2 it says 755 deluge:deluge
If I do an ls -l of torrents on server1 it says 755 vboxuser:1001
If I do an ls -l on my desktop pc is says 755 1001:thomas
If I look at /etc/passwd on the 3 systems it makes sense when comparing user numbers and group numbers only they don’t agree on which users those numbers belong to.
I’m a bit of a loss on how to fix it other than doing a chmod 777 and ignore the differences.
