Description nand 2012-02-08 14:58:09 UTC
rsync -a /dir/mysymlink root@ABC:/dir/mysymlink
does not update symlink (where it points) on machine ABC. Does create it only if it not exists.


rsync -a /dir/ root@ABC:/dir
this does update /dir/mysymlink

Rsync updates symlinks.  You'll need to be more specific.
