scp keeping rights and permissions with rsync

We all had once to scp something and keeping owner,group,permissions,etc.

There’s no option like that in scp, so you may want to use rsync for copying the localhost content directory on machine1

[root@localhost ~]# rsync -avI /etc/hadoop/ machine1:/etc/hadoop/

Here are the chosen options :

-a = archive mode (equals -rlptgoD)
-v = verbose
-p = preserve permissions
-o = preserve owner
-g = preserve group
-r = recurse into directories
-I = don’t skip files that has already been transferred
