[Bug 12916] New: when rsync fails to chown, it gives up and does not set timestamp

Samba - rsync mailing list
https://bugzilla.samba.org/show_bug.cgi?id=12916

            Bug ID: 12916
           Summary: when rsync fails to chown, it gives up and does not
                    set timestamp
           Product: rsync
           Version: 3.1.3
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: minor
          Priority: P5
         Component: core
          Assignee: [hidden email]
          Reporter: [hidden email]
        QA Contact: [hidden email]

If I do

rsync -ot VFAT_FS_MOUNT

It outputs

rsync: chown "SOME_PATH" failed: Operation not permitted (1)

And it's timestamp is the current time, not the source time as specified
by -t. Rsync should not give up on setting the time just because it
couldn't set the owner. rsync -t works fine.

I tested on git master from today, ce854cf021cb7207ee504c6badf97b4ffbb2021a

If you mount your FAT filesystems with the quiet option the FAT driver will
just ignore the operations it can't do instead of throwing fatal errors at you.
 This will resolve problems in many tools including rsync.

Great tip. If we can solve it that would be
good too.
