Ubuntu Security :: GRsync --Exclude Command Syntax / Backup A Whole Startup Disk To Another?

Jul 19, 2010

I'm trying to backup a whole startup disk to another with GRSYNC but I don't need some files or directories. For example, I don't want to backup my 'swapfile1' (I do not have a dedicated swap partition) or the 'media' directory' in order to no enter a looping sync.I've searched the web for the correct syntax of the --exclude command but none have worked if applied in the advanced option "before" rsync starts. These a sample of NOT workin syntaxes:

exclude /media or -- exclude 'media' or -- exclude "media"

same for swapfile1:

exclude swapfile1 or -- exclude 'swapfile1' or -- exclude "swapfile1"

Programming :: Find Syntax Exclude Certain Extensions And Filter By Age

May 26, 2010

I'm trying to find all the files in a specified directory that do NOT end in .archived or .error and are older than 30 mins. Currently I have: Code: find /opt/edi/incoming -type f ! ( -name "*.archived" -name "*.error" ) -cmin 30 But I keep returning files that end in those extensions and I'm not sure if I'm using -cmin correcty? If there is a better way to do this (perl, etc) I'm open to options, this is for a nagios check.

Fedora :: Grsync/rsync Crash / Grsync Run For Some Time And Once It Nears Completion It Will Crash?

Jun 14, 2011

I'm running Fedora 15 with current updates and kernel. I do not have anything special or non-standard about my configuration or setup. I use grsync to sync my home folder files to a remote rsync server on my network. I've checked my hard drives and my memory and everything else I can think. Here is the problem:

grsync will run for some time and once it nears completion it will crash. This, however, is no standard crash. It literally shuts my computer "OFF". I have shared the remote rsync folder through CIFS as well and I can copy those exact same files through nautilus with drag and drop without issue. I have had a few occasions where the rsync process will complete without issue, but this is a rare occasion. Since it powers my computer completely off I do not enjoy the luxury of having any log files or messages to attempt to diagnose from.

Red Hat :: Backup Exec Default Exclude List?

Feb 4, 2010

I am looking for a default, or starting "exclude list" for system backups. We are currently using Symantec Backup Exec, but I also do not think that is important to this question. I would think that the Oracle "lock" files and the /var/run/*.pid files can be excluded from the backup, and probably the dell file also. Can some provide a list of files/directories that can be excluded (from backup) for RHEL 5?

Ubuntu :: Exclude File From Terminal Command?

Jul 12, 2010

Well i downloaded a program with many .deb files ( At least 15 ) so i wanna execute them all trough the terminal so i typed

patowlmc@patowlmc-desktop:~$ cd /home/patowlmc/Downloads/i386
patowlmc@patowlmc-desktop:~/Downloads/i386$ sudo dpkg -i *.deb
Readme.deb: command not found

As you can see all files in the folder are .deb packages, but one: The Readme file, wich is a text file.

I know I just have to move the file to somewhere else, and everything should work, but i wanna know if there's a command for excluding a file or something.

P.D. I totally trust the program, so don't worry about so many .deb files.

Ubuntu Security :: Control Exclude Items For Home Folder Encryption With Ecryptfs?

Apr 17, 2011

if it's possible to use a white or blacklist to control which folders are ecryptfs encrypted when you're using the "encrypted home folder" option.

Of course I can always create an extra folder outside of my ~ and then symlink what I don't want encrypted into it, but I'd rather that it's possible to create like, ~/.ecryptsfs/excludelist with a list of paths that shouldn't be encrypted.

I need little help on live disk creation and disk image backup.

Can I create live disk using my hard drive installation? If yes then, can I restore the fedora from the live disk to the hard drive. I mean to say that from that live disk can I install fedora again in my hard drive.

Second question is, if I create the disk image of my hard drive( including ntfs & FAT32 partition) , can I restore it in a blank drive. If so , then can os will be restored also?

Security :: /etc/sudoers Syntax With %groupname?

Feb 1, 2010

My goal: I want to give users in the group "rtkprd" the ability to elevate their privileges and run a restricted shell script by using sudo. The full path to the shell script is /usr/local/bin/only_rtkprd.sh
The syntax of /etc/sudoers is giving me fits, to I've reduced my sudoers to a single log directive and a single line to enable the rtkprd group.

Defaults logfile=/var/log/sudo
%rtkprd ALL = (rtkprd) /usr/local/bin/only_rtkprd.sh

Ubuntu :: Syntax Ls Command Question For Generating Links?

Aug 6, 2010

I am trying to find out can I use the ls command to list my wav files in such a way that it follows this format: <OPTION value="/home/filepath.wav">My first file </OPTION> I would like to know if there is a way I could simplify this because I have about 100 wav files. They all have names and if I could get them listed then a space then the name again with something behind it I could use the find replace feature to generate a bunch of links . If not is there a script out there that could use this format to generate links under this format? BTW this is for a pull down menu that would control windows media player

General :: Command Syntax To Modify Multiple Files

Sep 26, 2009

I have a program I use, rrdtool. I need to modify a ds value on every file at the same time. However, using a wildcard (*) to try this operation of all files does not work and instead only updates one file.

Here is the command syntax:
rrdtool tune <file> --maximum traffic_in:100000000000 && rrdtool tune <file> --maximum traffic_out:100000000000
So, how can I do this on every file in the directory?

Software :: Vim - Command Input For Creating Syntax Files

Jan 25, 2011

There is a syntactical feature I would like to see in Vim, and so I thought to write myself a syntax file for my needs, but I am having trouble finding the exact type of syntax highlighting I want to incorporate'emulate. Currently in Vim, from the terminal instead of say gvim, when I place my cursor over a parenthesis or brace, the corresponding brace or parenthesis will highlight, or block its character. In my case, instead of a single character they will be full words specified within the syntax file.

I want to do something similar. For example if my document has three words:

I want the syntax file to tell Vim that when I have my cursor over the word Element1 or Element2 that Group will become highlighted. In the same, to have the cursor over Group will cause both Element1 and Element2 to highlight. I have looked here but understanding still eludes me: [URL]. I would also be happy with creating some sort of command input, where I type in the group name and the elements highlight. Like a very specific search function that searches for only and all instances that are contained within the group named.

Ubuntu Security :: Startup Login Screen Security?

Aug 27, 2010

just migrated to Lucid from Jaunty and noticed that the login startup screen looks more like windoze (shows all authorized users).One of the endearing security checks with Unix was that if you had access to a console you had guess both userid AND password - the system wouldn't tell you which was wrong.I feel that we have lowered security by making the list of authorized users visible on a console. Is there any way to turn it off and force users to enter both userid and password?

General :: Command Syntax Ignore Remaining Portion After Space?

Jul 14, 2010

I'm currently studying for my Linux+ test and I'm getting conflicting information regarding the rm -rf command. Yes, I know this a dangerous command, but my question is in regard to how the command functions. In one book I'm studying it says that rm -rf / home/myfolder (there's a space in there) will delete the entire root directory because there is a space between the root and home directory. It says that if there is a spacing such as this, it will ignore anything after the space, so in this case, it would delete the root directory and stop, not that there would be anything left anyway. Then in another book I have, it says that if you did a rm -rf folderName / (with the intention of adding the trailing slash to indicate it is a directory and not a folder) it will delete everything in folderName (assuming it's a child directory of your pwd) and then CONTINUE on and delete the root directory. Now, those two statements contradict each other. When you remove a directory, does the command line ignore anything after a space or not?

Ubuntu :: No Copying Done Using Grsync Or Rsync

May 18, 2011

I'm using Ubuntu 10.10 64-bit and I'm a fairly new linux user. I've been trying to set up Grsync to to make incremental backups to my external harddrive but have some problems. In the file lists it looks like files are actually being copied but when I look at the harddrive none of the new files are actually there. As far as I can understand I'm not making a dry-run. I also found this thread: [URL] And I tried using the commands suggested in that post, with the same results.
