rsync

Asked by wgnesbit on 2009-05-27

I'm trying to determine if I can connect to a Netware server using rsync from my Ubuntu server. The ultimate goal is to copy or pull-down the contents of VOL1 and VOL2 from the Netware server to the Ubuntu server for continuity of operations and disaster recovery purposes.

I can use rsync on the Ubuntu server to copy files from one directory to another, but I can't seem to communicate with my Netware server, and I don't know the proper syntax for the rsync to take place.

Any information you can share would be helpful.

Detailed information about rsync's syntax can be found by running "man rsync" on the command line. From the documentation it seems that they syntax to pull from a remote host is as follows

rsync [OPTION...] [USER@]HOST:SRC... [DEST]

For example, on my local machine if I wanted to pull the directory /home/user/backup from my server that was located at 192.168.0.1 and put it in my current directory I would do the following

rsync -a user@192.168.0.1:/home/user/backup ./

All the options given will be specific to your situation. As the manpage states, this assumes that there is a remote-shell program such as ssh or rsh operating on the remote machine. If there isn't such a program running on it, you can use set up the rsync deamon on the remote machine. Your best bet for further information is to read through the man page.
