if I mount a sshfs point as root and use the option
allow_other then on the original server (SERVERA) the files are owned by the SSH user, and on the destination server (SERVERB) are accessible (writable) by everyone.
Is it possible instead to do the mount in a way that, on SERVERB, I can preserve ownership and permission metadata?
For example, let's say that I have a user bob, I create (as root) a folder, I chown it to bob and then bob can manage his own files as if they would be on a local disk.
I am interested in a new empty share, so preserving of old data to match users on the server is not important for me.
