Hi again people!!
Kinda solved the issue I started this thread for but still i'm experienmcing some difficulties with my RSync backup. Perhaps one of you might have a solution to the following problem:
I'm using a script to make a incremental, date stamped snapshot of a folder. or, at least I'm trying to...
from the script, the manual command would look kinda like this:
rsync -rvh -e ssh --delete --link-dest=server1.office.nl:/mnt/rsync/backup/2012-07-17 /backup server1.office.nl:/mnt/rsync/backup/2012-07-19 1> /var/log/backup/backup1.log
The error RSync returns is: --link-dest arg does not exist: server1.office.nl:/mnt/rsync/backup/2012-07-17
The sync works fine except for being incremental due to the error above. I'm able to mount the ../2012-07-17 folder with sshfs however when i change the --linkdest= path to the mount poit, the same error is produced... when I cd to the mount point I am able to see all the fiels and folders RSync should use..
I've googled for --link-dest problems, couldn't find one single site that mentioned this option.
Any1 got any idear??
For more information: My method is based on Andrew J. Nelson's guide on http://webgnuru.com/linux/rsync_incremental.php
Thanks in advance!!
