rsync error: syntax or usage error (code 1) at main.c(1490) [receiver=3.0.6]


Hi

Rsync is not working with below script..

#! /bin/sh

targetServer=10.20.30.X
TUser=abc

transferTemp=/home/abc/

excludeFiles="*.tar"

rsync -avz --links --exclude=${excludeFiles} --delete -e "ssh -l ${TUser}"
/root/abc/QX* ${TUser}@${targetServer}:${transferTemp}

Getting the following error...

rsync version 3.0.6 protocol version 30
Copyright (C) 1996-2009 by Andrew Tridgell, Wayne Davison, and others.
Web site: http://rsync.samba.org/
Capabilities:
64-bit files, 64-bit inums, 32-bit timestamps, 64-bit long ints,
socketpairs, hardlinks, symlinks, IPv6, batchfiles, inplace,
append, ACLs, xattrs, iconv, symtimes

General Public Licence for details.

rsync is a file transfer program capable of efficient remote update
via a fast differencing algorithm.

Usage: rsync [OPTION]... SRC [SRC]... DEST
or rsync [OPTION]... SRC [SRC]... [USER@]HOSTEST
or rsync [OPTION]... SRC [SRC]... [USER@]HOST:EST
or rsync [OPTION]... SRC [SRC]... rsync://[USER@]HOST[:PORT]/DEST
or rsync [OPTION]... [USER@]HOST:SRC [DEST]
or rsync [OPTION]... [USER@]HOST::SRC [DEST]
or rsync [OPTION]... rsync://[USER@]HOST[:PORT]/SRC [DEST]
The ':' usages connect via remote shell, while '::' & 'rsync://' usages connect
to an rsync daemon, and require SRC or DEST to start with a module name.

Any one have any idea about this?

Hi

Run your script with

bash -x scriptname

You can then see the exact rsync command. And use code tags when you post code. From what you've posted, it's impossible to tell whats wrong.

Thanks Guttorm.

Its not worked me, still the same issue.

Use "rsync --daemon --help" to see the daemon-mode command-line options.
Please see the rsync(1) and rsyncd.conf(5) man pages for full documentation.
See http://rsync.samba.org/ for updates, bug reports, and answers

+ /root/abc/QX3061300 /root/abc/QX3070800 TUser@10.20.30.12:/home/abc
new.sh: line 18: /root/abc/QX3061300: is a directory

I think its not working for recursive directories.

Can you explain what is required for the same?

Thanks

You still post the error messages to some commands, without posting the commands. Using bash -x should output the actual commands. And still no code tags. Could it be you're doing this?
Code:
rsync -avz --links --exclude=${excludeFiles} --delete -e "ssh -l ${TUser}"
/root/abc/QX* ${TUser}@${targetServer}:${transferTemp}
Did the forum break it into 2 lines? If it's two lines in the script, yoy're basically first doing an rsync command without telling it the directories to sync. And after give the shell some directories as a new command.

Here the command to be used..

#! /bin/sh

targetServer=10.20.30.12
TUser=abc

transferTemp=/home/abc/

excludeFiles="*.tar"

rsync -avz --links --exclude=${excludeFiles} --delete -e "ssh -l ${TUser}"
/root/abc/QX* ${TUser}@${targetServer}:${transferTemp}


Here the output for command
