I've started creating dynamic
sshfs mounts to other devices on my local network, but the equivalent users which are the same, have different UIDs/GIDs.
From what I've found whilst searching for a solution I need to add
-o idmap=file -o uidfile=/mnt/pcfixe_uid_file -o gidfile=/mnt/pcfixe_gid_file to force how the mount should be owned.
What I can't do, is find out what one of these files is or how it is formatted. Can someone provide an example or point to an appropriate resource that does so.
For example, the device that I am running SSHFS on is UID=1000,GID=1000. The device to which I'm connecting is UID=1001,GID=1007. How do I 'send' the 1001/1007 so it owns the share on the other device's side.
BACKGROUND: I have several small (Raspberry Pi) transmission servers, I move any files under Torrents not in Complete, Incomplete or Incoming, into Complete. This happens on the Transmission server. I then connect to each of the Transmission servers from a main file server to pull all files from Torrents/Complete to a central repository.
As the equivalent users across the servers do not have matching uids/gids I need to be able to force them to be/appear to be a specific uid/gid depending on which server I'm pulling from.
