first time use of rsync: few errors are coming; any advice how to solve it is welcome


hello,
since I installed a central house server with printer/storage during christmas ("raspberry pi" with raspbian), I am making the first backup with the raspberry and a 500GB drive attached to it.
I use the command:
Quote:
rsync -avz ~/* rsync://192.168.178.50/asusfamily
(copy of files on a central house server)

Few error messages are coming and it seems this must be solved. For the reason this is the first time in my life I am using rsync (I used "mc" for file copy/backup before), I kindly ask here for few answer in order for me to solve quicker the issues.

Start of the messages of rsync

Code:
sending incremental file list 
examples.desktop 
Arbeitsfläche/
..
the rsync seems not to create any new directory (ok for me):
Code:
rsync: recv_generator: mkdir "/Arbeitsfläche" (in asusfamily) failed: Permission denied (13) 
*** Skipping any contents from this failed directory ***
..
A time stamps can not be created. This is probably an issue for the comparison of new/old files. How to solve this?
Code:
Bilder/ 
rsync: failed to set times on "/Bilder" (in asusfamily): Operation not permitted (1)
--
Set permissions not possible.. how to solve this? this is probably disturbing the update of files.
Code:
Bilder/Fotos_Family/2008/CiaraChristening/ 
rsync: failed to set permissions on "/Bilder/Fotos_Family/2008/CiaraChristening" (in asusfamily): Operation not permitted (1)
..
Code:
sent 87512 bytes  received 280 bytes  35116.80 bytes/sec 
total size is 2480295900  speedup is 28251.96 
rsync error: some files/attrs were not transferred (see previous errors) (code 23) at main.c(1070) [sender=3.0.9]
End of the messages.

Is your server trying to store the files on any type of FAT or NTFS filesystem? Those filesystems do not support Unix-style permissions and timestamps.

did you do those coomand as root? (permisions)

and consider using backintime - it uses rsync but it has a nice GUI so smaller chance of making mistake. And for the future try btrfs (it makes snapshots by default), on my suse 13.1 I can easily manage it via snapper. Try to look at rsyncd.conf

Hello,
I am still working on rsync (I will try backintime later).
There a differences between a dry run and a run. Why? (option "n").
The first one dont show errors.
The second one yes.

The rsyncd.conf is
========================
use chroot = true

transfer logging = true
log file = /var/log/rsyncd.log
log format = %h %o %f %l %b

[asusfamily]
comment = central storage asus family
path = /mnt/externalstorage/asusk51ae/family/

gid = nogroup

Those "Permission denied" errors are telling you that the receiving rsyncd process does not have write permission in /mnt/externalstorage/asusk51ae/family/ . If you are not running rsyncd with root privileges, then it needs to run under a UID that has write permission in that directory.

Thanks.
rsyncd seems to work with root. So,
I changed the rights. I made...

sudo find /mnt/externalstorage/ -type d -exec chmod 777 {} +
sudo find /mnt/externalstorage/ -type f -exec chmod 777 {} +
rsync -qurz * rsync://192.168.178.50/asusfamily

Everything was transfered. This is certainly NOT the best way of doing it (open to anybody) but it works and my storage is normaly offline.
