I want to backup a NAS tonight i was running a test-run and i got some errors. rsync couldn't open a lot of files because of a permissions error. And when i look to the files it's true only the owner of the file have permissions. Now we want to backup these files but don't want to change all the permissions manually. Another solution we don't want is to give rsync root permissions. We don't want this because of security issues. We only want to give rsync read permissions. Do any of you know a solution for this. The NAS we want to back-up is a VNX5300.
