On BOTH sides do a ls -n
This will show the numeric IDs on both
Most likely the SAME numeric id will be one thing on one
host and something else on the other host.
Most likely --numeric-ids is doing exactly what it is
supposed to do
ls -l will show names if it can find a name that
corresponds to the (numeric) id.
Most every tool will store the file with the owner and
group of what runs on the target.
The alternative is probably to tar the files on the source,
transfer the tarball, untar the files on the target.

I don't know if my request is clear...sorry for my bad english...
I just need to preserve ID...I don't want rsync to convert id to name group because it takes the name group of the server instead of my local machine.
I run rsync command in local machine in root, the deamon is run in root too, in rsyncd.conf in my module I set gid=root, uid=root...I have tried --numeric-ids parameter...and nothing...
So if you know another tool which do that...

or more names.

preserve the groups, I think the owner can change groups to/from groups that
the owner is in.

owner needs to belong to both groups.
