Description Mark Haney 2007-01-08 19:24:00 UTC
I'm getting some unknown errors when trying to rsync between one of our servers and a client of ours.  These errors started after this server was upgraded to Fedora Core 5, but I've verified that the upgrade isn't the cause of the problem as another server running RHEL AS 4 has the same problem.  Below is the last 70 lines of an strace done earlier today.

As for the client side the server is RHEL 3 and it hasn't had any major updates and rsync isn't being used on it's end.
Comment 1 Wayne Davison 2008-01-12 11:45:40 UTC
All I see in the strace info is rsync complaining about the connection closing. You'll need to figure out why the connection is closing, perhaps using hints from the issues-and-debugging web page on the rsync website.

If you have further info to provide, please feel free to reopen this.
