Hope this helps.
Thank you very much for your reply.
I will try as per your log. But before that i would like to know that i backup everyday approximately 40 windows workstations onto Linux Server which happens automatically on system shutdown. Therefore the log will be very big. Hence, i feel it will be cumbersome to know that which all the systems are backed up and are there any failures. In this regard, i would like to know if there is any log reader or any idea you have specifically for rsync.
