rsync no such file or directory (2)

I'm trying to use rsync to backup my /home directory on server yoruban to server legba with the following command:

rsync -a -e ssh /home root@

I've also tried running the command on the destination server (legba), and running as a non-root user.
I've updated to the latest rsync.

I get tons of stat no such file or directory (2) errors

when I try as root I get read-only filesystem errors (30)

I've looked around but can't understand what's happening.

Could somebody please point me in the right direction ?

I'm not sure of my ground here, but are you getting a mix of users here?


rsync -a -e "ssh -l root" /home root@

work any better?

thanks for the quick answer !

your suggestion yields many (many many) chgrp failed read only filesystem (30) errors

Any other ideas ?

what distro are you running?

It would help if you posted some of the erroes you are getting

RH 9 on yoruban
FC3 on legba

Still out of my ground here, but are you running SELinux on legba? If so, does it work if you try it with SELinux disabled (setenforce 0)

disabling selinux did it (didn't think I had left it on, either)

Thanks very much for your help !
