Description Jay 2009-01-15 09:49:44 UTC
Currently we are using rsync to backup our critical information to a hard drive connected to a remote computer. There are two main folders, one of them works and the other does not. When I try to rsync the second one I get the following errors.

rsync: recv generator: mkdir "/mnt/usb_hd/bigmama_bak/ccdevel/attachments/tickets/112" failed: No such file or directory (2)

rsync: stat "/mnt/usb_hd/bigmama_bak/ccdevel/attachments/tickets/112" failed: No such file or directory (2)

Rsync won't create ancestors of the destination directory; this may be what you're seeing.  Please post your rsync command.
Comment 2 Jay 2009-01-15 12:21:39 UTC
 the command im using is

rsync -zavPot /critical/svn_trac/trac/ ssh ktc@
Comment 3 Matt McCutchen 2009-01-15 17:55:16 UTC
The problematic directory is inside the destination, so rsync should have been able to create it.

- Do you get any other error messages?

- What is the nearest ancestor of /mnt/usb_hd/bigmama_bak/ccdevel/attachments/tickets/112 that exists on the destination?

- Please strace the receiving end using the rsync-debug script from http://rsync.samba.org/issues.html and attach the output to this bug, or email it to Wayne or me if it is big or private.
