Might be a choice made above me that I can't. Should know soon.

Hi,

RHEL has the limitation that they do not include a lot of stuff. But in my opinion if you can get the rpm file you can install it in an easy way:
Code:
rpm -Uvh filename.rpm
should do the trick (as I'm told).

Kind regards,

Eric

Thanks for the info. Now I just have to wait and see "if" i'm allowed to install it. If not i'm stuck with rsync.

Oh, now I get it, you might need approval from 'above' in order to install. Sorry about the misunderstanding.

Kind regards,

Eric

Not necessarily a no go, when I started working here in Spain a year ago, they only had 2 RHEL servers and about 60 Windoze. They were afraid of migrating anything, since they didn't have the knowledge. Now, one year later, we have 20 Linux (mostly Debian) and 40 Window§ servers, and still migrating things. Just to indicate that 'not knowing' or 'not using' at present doesn't mean your boss will give you a NO on the request.

You could ask him to allow you to set up a test environment in order to install and use Unison, and then compare it with rsync and communicate your findings with him.

Kind regards,

Eric

Unison got shot down. I'm stuck with rsync.

Chris made the suggestion earlier to try this

rsync -avz /src/bar/A* host:/data/tmp


But won't that grab any folder or files within those folders who's name starts with A?

What I need to do is only look at folder names at that path, have it be whether it starts with A or a, and have it sync the entire folder regardless of what the filenames are inside the folder.

I think if I do a

find . -type d -iname "a*"

that will only give me folders who's names start with a or A. The only folders under my directory are those at the root level, so that might work. But how would i have rsync take those results and move them to say /mnt/usbdrive/FolderA-Z

Hi,

Sorry to hear that Unison got shot down without even giving you a change to try it. Well, it's their loss. Hope you can get rsync to do what you want.

Kind regards,

Eric

I can't even figure out how to do a find that will get me all the folders A-Z. I think if I wanted to have it rsync just all the A or a folders, I could do something like the following but I'm really not sure

find . -type d -iname "a*" -exec rsync -rtv --modify-window=1 {} /mnt/usbdrive/FolderA-Z \;

Maybe I need to open a new post to have someone look at it before I blow up my server?
