Hi All,

First of all, i appologize for stripping off the company confidential
stuff from the problem. But, as it turns out, that is where the issue

Thanks to Riddoch John and for point it out.

we are using the employee ids for user names. so, when i use the user
name , which is numeral, with chown, it was assuming it is a literal UID
instead of looking up the actual user id from password file. using the
UID with chown fixed the issue like magic!

I am glad we figured it out instead of killing bugs like zombies.

Thank you guy!
