I'm mounting a remote linux file system on Ubuntu 16.04 using Nautilus by "Connect to server" then
The file has ownership
myusername:groupA on the remote server.
When I edit and save the file remotely with Gedit or another editor it changes the ownership on the server to
It doesn't respect the initial group ownership.
Is there a way to change this behaviour?
When I right click the file in Nautilus it says the group ID is 115. I looked up the name with..
getent group 115 | cut -d: -f1
and it returns
Which leads me to believe it some sort of error. Maybe Ubuntu doesn't recognize the remote group name?
The group name
groupA exists on both the local and remote machines but with different group IDs. I wonder if that is the problem.
