I'm trying to backup to a NAS (Buffalo Terastation).
I can use rsync from local linux machines via:
rsync -av /home/xxx rsync://192.168.1.222/array1_Backup/test
or by giving a user name
rsync -av /home/tibco rsync://firstname.lastname@example.org/array1_Backup/test
but with the xsi-backup and using
./xsibackup --backup-prog=rsync --backup-point="192.168.1.222:22:/array1_Backup/test/" --backup-type=custom
How do i configure the backup-point to use a named user, rather than try and use root who i'm logged onto on the esx machine ?
Thanks ... Andy
You are assuming XSIBackup uses the rsync:// protocol directly, when it does not.
XSIBackup tunnels Rsync protocol through an SSH tunnel, thus, you must make sure a compatible Rsync binary is present at the other end's path (/bin or /usr/bin) and that you have previously linked both servers via the [https://33hops.com/xsibackup-help-man-page.html#linksrv]--link command[/url]
Close versions of Rsync are generally compatible, using the same version on both ends is obviously the best thing to do.
