cron job

I got rsnapshot based backup server up and running for my network under Debian Linux 5.x. But, whenever I run a backup job using the following command:
rsnapshot -v -c /root/rsnapshot.server1.conf hourly
I get the following messages on screen:

WARNING: Could not lchown() symlink "/nas/.rsnapshot/hourly.1/server1.example.com/etc/alternatives/locate"
WARNING: Could not lchown() symlink "/nas/.rsnapshot/hourly.1/server1.example.com/etc/alternatives/nc.1.gz"
WARNING: Could not lchown() symlink "/nas/.rsnapshot/hourly.1/server1.example.com/etc/alternatives/jexec-binfmt"
WARNING: Could not lchown() symlink "/nas/.rsnapshot/hourly.1/server1.example.com/etc/alternatives/servertool"
