make an exception when doing rsync
 
HI

I want to rsync -e ssh -av /home/* root@noah:/home this is works, works to good.

Thing is this file system is enable with quota on both the systems (Different quota sizes).

These machines are not identical machines

How do I stop quota.usr and quota.grp files from sinking (Make an exception out of these two files)?

Regards

Hi

How do I make a back up of a remote server directory in to a single file using rsync.

And is there a another way to do this

Regards

rsync the remonte server directory to your backup box then tar the directory on your backup box which makes a single archive file and then delete the rsynced directory on the backup box.

to do this I would need almost towies the space till I delete the source, cant I make a tar copy directly at the time of rsync with out just rsync and then doing the tar.

rsync | tar like

and restore doing the oposit

Hi

My ldap database is in /var/lib/ldap directory, till I can get the ldap replication (it is going nuts) working can I do rsync to keep the ldap databases up to date.

rsync -e ssh -Uav /var/lib/ldap/* noah:/var/lib/ldap
