rsync error

Post by leo » Mon, 26 Apr 2004 00:23:47

does anyone use rsync as a backup server?
it usually works okay, however when i use  it on this weekend, it prompts
this error msg.
please help

building file list ...

1. rsync error message

I'm attempting to use rsync to "mirror" a set of remote file systems
on my local machine, so I can do tape backups locally.  It seems
to work fine, but I'm getting this message (a few times) on the
remote system, in /etc/messages:

    rsyncd[16649]: /etc/spwd.db: No such file or directory

Remote: 4.4-RELEASE
Local: 4.5-RELEASE
both are running rsync 2.5.2, installed from the ports.

The remote system is running 'rsync --daemon', with "uid=root" and
"hosts allow" restricted to my local system.  One of the rsync
executions is copying /etc, but the message seems to happen on other
sections as well.

All of the executions are of the form:
    /usr/local/bin/rsync -azv hostname::bin  ./bin

So, how do I refine things, plug holes, etc, to get rid of this
