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.
the command im using is
rsync -zavPot /critical/svn_trac/trac/ ssh firstname.lastname@example.org:/mnt/usb_hd/bigmama_bak
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.
