CentOS 5 :: Rsync 3.0.7-1.el5.rf Does Not Work

Aug 18, 2010

I installed CentOS 5.4 on a virtual server to host the tool OpenVAS, which is used to execute vulnerability assessment.This tool is based on a master engine and thousand of plugins, each one doing a specific, little function.I wrote a cron that, every sunday, updates the list of these plugins to keep the system updated; this cron uses a tool's proprietary function that download the new plugins from a site using rsync.I was using the rsync 2.6.8-3.1 until last week, when I decided to install ALL the updates proposed by operating system itself (more than 170) and the whole list includes rsync 3.0.7-1.el5.rf (from rpmforge).

This monday, the log of the tool's function gave me a bad response about the impossibility to establish a connection with the remote server due to a connection timeout.Before doing the rollback of the system, I tried to understand what happened, so I started manually the function on a terminal and, together, I was watching the results using netstat -tuvnap, so I saw that there was an attempt of connection, between my server and the remote one, but the connection did not finish the three way handshake, because the state of connection was always "SYN_STAT".I tried to value the $RSYNC_PROXY variable, because there is a proxy between my server and the world, but the result was exactly the same, so I was forced to execute the rollback of the system, which works very well now!

Server :: Unifying Permissions Between Two Servers - CentOS - Webmin/CentOs - Cpanel - And Rsync

Jan 1, 2010

I have two servers, both running CentOS, but one running Cpanel as the control panel and the other running Webmin.

I would like to sync the web folders using rsync. However, when I sync the files from the Cpanel host the permissions look as follows:


But that doesn't work on the Webmin server which needs the following:


It seems the Cpanel install has the group as 'nobody' whilst webmin has it the same as the file owner. I can fix this by running:


But as the file transfers will be frequent, I don't want the files to be inaccessible until chown is run.

So, what I really want to know is - how can I change things on the 'webmin' server so that files with ownership owner:nobody will run?

Server :: Cronjob Rsync Doesn't Work

Mar 28, 2011

I have a computer that I would like to backup the home directory onto a server. I created a script called wien_backup.sh that contains the following:

#!/bin/bash -l
/usr/bin/rsync -rv --delete-after --ignore-errors -e /usr/bin/ssh root@wngr403-unix2:/home/ /space/systemimager/Wien/

where wngr403-unix2 is the computer I am backing up, and the script is ran from the server. If I run the script by itself, it works just fine. If I run it as a cronjob, the /var/log/syslog says it ran, but it does nothing.

CentOS 5 :: Making Own Yum Repository Via Rsync?

Oct 29, 2009

I'm making my own yum repository - firstly so that all the machines I administer can be updatedvia the internal network, secondly so that I can test any updates on a spare machine before passing them on, and thirdly so that I can add my own repo for internal software.

I've created the necessary folders under my webserver, and used rsync to update them from my local CentOS mirror, following the instructions at [URL]

I notice it says to run "createrepo" on the base repository, created by copying the rpms from release DVD.

When I rsynced the updates repo, but I notice that the files in repodata are very small. In fact, having a look inside them, filelists.xml contains no file details. But if I run createrepo in the updates directory, filelists.xml gets lots of file details inside it.

I wondered if maybe the local mirror hadn't been updated properly, but checking against mirror.centos.org shows that has the same files.

how does the (real, live, CentOS) updates repo work when there is nothing in the filelists?

Software :: CentOS 5 - Mirroring System Using Rsync

Mar 30, 2011

I believe it was rsync was the tool. I have a box running CentOS 5. It has a 250GB HD in it. I have another drive with the exact model. Currently it has a as a said a 250GB IDE drive. I want to shutdown the machine, install this other hard drive and set up a cron job that will backup my main drive at times that I set. This way if the main drive fails, I do not loose all the data and have to rebuild the server from scratch as I have been custom configuring it for years. I can't remember if there was an issue with the main drive being mounted to back it up or not. I have looked at some of the how's on rsync but they seem to only talk about using another server for this. If I shit down the box, install the new drive, and the box boots back up, is it going to ask about that drive or what do I need to do to get rsync going and does it partition the drive as such? And can I do it this way. This way if the main drive fails, I can just swap the drive and be on my marry way.

General :: Centos Grant Read Access For RSync

May 2, 2011

I am trying to setup a Rsync backup method.I have multiple files and folders all OWNED by different users.Now I can read the files as root.But I want to make a user for RSYNC that can ONLY read all these files for copying them across.It requires to create a non password login and I dont want to do that with the root user ! I have tried to create a new user and use 'setfacl':setfacl -m u:someuser:r /var/test.But when I su to 'someuser' I cannot copy the files to my homedir. So I think it wont work for rsync also.

CentOS 5 :: Any Known Errors On Allocating Disk Space Using Rsync?

Mar 13, 2009

Need to know if there are any known errors allocating disk space using rsync. I have recently setup a small file backup server (2 500GB drives) running Centos 5.2, with a rsync daemon (via xinetd). However I have noticed that after about a week of usage, if I reboot, then the disk that rsync uses, has a lot of multiply claimed blocks and inode errors, such that I have to run fsck multiple times to fix. This has happened a couple of times now so I don't think that its random.

CentOS 5 :: RSYNC: Listing Files Added & Changed?

I'm using rsync to create a mirror of the data files on our main server every day. I've looked at the man page, and can't see it; can I get a listing of the files that have been changed on or added to the mirror when it's completed? Can it just log what it's doing to a file?

how rsync will handle disk images. Will rsync copy only the changed blocks of a vhd or a lun? This is what I've been told, but wouldn't this require overlaying a filesystem on the vhd? How would rsync handle copying a 500GB lun?

Server :: Rsync Execution - With Crontab - Have Given Full Path To Rsync Too

Apr 12, 2011

I have a tiny shell script to rsync files between two servers and remove the source files.

This script works fine, when it has been initiated manually or even when the rsync command is executed on the command line.

But the same script doesn't work, when I try to automate it through crontab.

I am using 'abc' user to execute this rsync, instead of root, as root login to servers are restricted in all of our servers, by us.

As I mentioned earlier, manual execution works like charm!

When this rsync.sh is initiated through crontab, it runs the first command(chown abc.abc ...) perfectly without any issues. But the second line is not at all executed, and there is no log entry i can find at /mnt/xyz/folder/rsync.log.

CentOS 5 :: Rsync To A Samba Share Ignores Force Create Mode?

Jan 12, 2011

Have an issue with my CentOS server. I have a fully updated Centos 5.5 server and I have samba set up to serve shares to a couple of groups in my home office. I have it set up to force user/group and force directory create mode 770 and force file mode of 770. This set up works perfectly well for normal connections to the server; no matter who connects, all files and directories are owned by the specified users/group and create modes I specify. The problem is when I try to rsync some files to the same shares. When I do this, rsync ignores the directory/file forced create mode. It will honor the user/group, however. As an example, if I create a directory on one machine connected to the samba share, I get the following:

drwxr-x--- 3 nobody users 0 2010-12-26 20:42 Misc Pics

Server :: Rsync Fails In Cron - Ssh Key - For Rsync?

Dec 8, 2010

I'm using Ubuntu 10.04 LTS server and Postgresql 8.4. I have a .sh script that is run by cron every other hour. That works fine. The .sh script includes an rsync command that copies a postgresql dump .tar file to a remote archive location via ssh. That fails when run by cron; I think because it is (quietly) asking for the remote user's password (and not getting it). I set up the public/private ssh key arrangement. The script succeeds when run manually as the same user that the cron job uses, and does not ask for the password. I am able to ssh to the remote server from the source server (using the same username) and not get the password prompt (both directions), so why doesn't rsync work? I even put a .pgpass file in the root of that user's directory with that user's password, and the user/password are identical on both servers.

I think the problem is rsync is not able to use the ssh key correctly. I tried adding this to my script but it didn't help.


Here is the rsync command embedding in the .sh script.


Here is the cron entry:

CentOS 5 :: Mirroring With Rsync - Error "unknown Module"

Jun 6, 2011

Using mrepo, i'm trying to pull down centos 5.6 updates from a mirror (say, mirrors.kernel.org or mirrors.usc.edu). i want to use rsync to do this so i can try to exclude packages i don't need on my servers (e.g. firefox, openoffice). when i try this, i get the error "@ERROR: Unknown module '5.6'".

The following rsync command is what mrepo uses when i run "mrepo -ugvvvv":

When i run that, i get the unknown module error.

But what i don't understand about that error is, sniffing out the rsync server's modules on the commandline shows me that module (and path?) should work. like so:

Anyone know what i'm doing wrong when trying to pull this mirror down via mrepo? (or even that long rsync command)

Networking :: New Install Of Centos 5.5 Will Not Work On Net Work With Fixed IP Or DHCP

Jan 12, 2011

I am trying to set up an unused machine as a web server for my students.

I originaly tried with Redhat 9 and had the same problems. I am using an HP Pentium 4 system with 2 network cards.

1) The built in Realtek RTL8139 configured as eth0.

2) An add in Broadcom BCM5782 Gigabit card that was added I presume when the built in card failed (we have a number of machines like this around the school), configured as eth1.

I did not realize the second card was installed when I had Red hat 9 on the system, but I discovered it after installing centos 5.5. I have tried to configure the system to use DHCP with and without getting the DNS from the provider, and both ways the system complains that there is no connection, check the cable, so it will not activate the device.

When I configure the device to use a fixed IP, I can configure the device, but I can't ping anything on the network other than myself. I suppose it is possible that both network cards have failed, but I get green link lights with both cards, when I connect them to my router, so I am at a loss as to why neither board seems to work. I don't have a spare network card to slide in because the computer takes a special mini card. Is there an easy way to test the board to see if the board is a problem?

CentOS 5 Networking :: Centos 5.2 / Hyper-V/ Bridge With Synthetic Adapters Does Not Work?

Jan 27, 2009

I have a Centos 5.2 VM running under Windows 2008 Hyper-V. If I add two "legacy Nic's" and bridge them, everything appears to work fine. However, if I remove the legacy nics and replace them with two synthetic nics (linux integration components), the nics seems to function fine UNTIL I add them to a bridge.This VM will eventually be used as a DansGuardian/Squid transparent proxy for a local library. The logical layout is represented by the attached jpg image. I have also included the ifcfg- scripts for the adapters and bridge for both scenarios.It would also be useful if someone else has Hyper-V with the integration components and dual physical nics to see if they can reproduce my symptoms on their box.Legacy Adapters:

CentOS 5 Networking :: OpenVPN Doesn't Work On CentOS 5.3 With Windows Client?

This will be a little long (having read Phil's 'how to ask questions' FAQ). I'm trying to get OpenVPN working between my CentOS server and some Windoze laptops running XP. There seems to be plenty of sample
config files available, but to date, none of them have worked for me. Pulling out my trusty Wireshark, I've found some clues,

My local subnet (NAT'ed by my gateway router) is 192.168.52.x. My router has been configured with a conduit (port-forward) for port 1194 (the standard OpenVPN port), which points towards my CentOS server.The CentOS server is .52.112, and the supplicant is .52.110. I have tried the lient both inside and outside my local subnet, with no difference in events or outcomes.
