RedHat 5.7 Snapshot 5 - rsync fails
Last modified: 2015-03-04 18:57:36 EST
Description of problem:
This is on RedHat 5.7 Snapshot 5.
rsync fails with the error indicated below.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
The rsync command I am using:
rsync -arC -q -e rsh --progress -r 18.104.22.168:/cvs/unix_qa/stable/scripts/* /scripts/
Steps to Reproduce:
Error message I get:
rsync: writefd_unbuffered failed to write 4 bytes to socket [receiver]: Broken pipe (32)
rsync error: error in rsync protocol data stream (code 12) at io.c(1525) [receiver=3.0.6]
I install my source copy of rsync-3.0.8 and everything works fine.
Me too, in RHEL-5.7 release.
$ rpm -q rsync
$ rsync 192.168.0.2:
usage: ssh [-1246AaCfgkMNnqsTtVvXxY] [-b bind_address] [-c cipher_spec]
[-D [bind_address:]port] [-e escape_char] [-F configfile]
[-i identity_file] [-L [bind_address:]port:host:hostport]
[-l login_name] [-m mac_spec] [-O ctl_cmd] [-o option] [-p port]
[-R [bind_address:]port:host:hostport] [-S ctl_path]
[-w tunnel:tunnel] [user@]hostname [command]
rsync: connection unexpectedly closed (0 bytes received so far) [receiver]
rsync error: unexplained error (code 255) at io.c(600) [receiver=3.0.6]
I can confirm the behaviour as described in Comment 1. My current workaround was to downgrade from rsync 3.0.6-4.el5 to 2.6.8-3.1 via the command:
$ yum downgrade rsync
RHEL-5.7 release, on both 32 and 64-bit Intel/AMD platforms using the latest openssh (4.3p2-72.el5_6.3).

Nevermind, see Bug 724041. Still, not looking forward to rewriting dozens of scripts, downgrading for now.
