I think I may have discovered one of the reasons why the rsync looks like it's failing. I have the process kicking off daily as an entry in the crontab. It appears that, for whatever reason, the rsync process isn't completing within 24 hours before it gets kicked off again.
This begs the question. Does rsync process the file set incrementally after the first full rsync completes? I ask because my next question is how would I recover from the rsync'ed fileset?
In other words, should my process be to do a full rsync to a separate location then continue to rsync just the changed, deleted or added files?
Sorry if this sounds confusing, but I'm just as confused, I guess. The whole purpose of this exercise is to backup a server to another server so I can restore from the second server.
Thanks for your continued interest.
