[Dirvish] Problems with permission

The file you would need is /etc/passwd. I wouldn't bother, though. The owners that you see with the ls command are translated from the uid (user id) that is actually stored to the string representing that owner if one exists. What is stored with the file is the same though.

  I noticed that when we run a full system backup to another server, some of the ownerships are set wrong, for example folder which owner should be xx2000:xx2000 is in the backupped server just 2000:2000. Is it possible to get the right ownerships by copying the data from /etc/shadow to the backupping server(*in debian)? I guess that file holds the information for the users.
