Description Hiroaki Yoshida 2000-04-10 16:49:35 EDT
I am and have been using rsync to mirror my /home dir
to three different servers. apon the upgrade to version rsync-2.4.1
which was included w/ 6.2 rsync will at random stop copying files.

I only happens only when there are a large number of files to copy.
we currently have over 2500 users. most have home-pages strored in /home.

resolution was to switch back to rsync-2.3.1 off of my redhat 6.1 cd.
no change was made to backup script or to server except rsync package.

problem was confirmed w/ a new compile and install from the rsync source
gotten from the authors home page.

below is the script:

rsync  --delete -progte ssh root@localline.com:/home/* /home/
rsync  -progte ssh root@localline.com:/etc/group /etc/
rsync  -progte ssh root@localline.com:/etc/shadow /etc/
rsync  -progte ssh root@localline.com:/etc/passwd /etc/

Please grab rsync-2.4.2 or later from rawhide; this should
fix this problem.
