i have trouble with rsync on solaris.
i have a production-server with Solaris 7 and a 200 GB RAID attached.
the server runs without troubles for month.

rsync-2.3.1-binaries on both machines. i sync the RAIDs every night (i
sync subfolders of the RAID - its faster as sync the whole RAID).
after a few days (a week) the backup-server panics in the middle of the
rsync and reboots. filesystemcheck finds troubles.
then i done a test:
filesystemcheck on backup-server: ok, no troubles.
filesystemcheck on backup-server: not ok, many troubles.
i removed rsync-2.3.1 and installed rsync-2.5.2 with same results.
rsync doesnt report any troubles - all fine a few days. then after a few
days rsync report IO-Error on backup-server on file xxx. then a few days
later the backup-server reboots during rsync. the production-server runs
without troubles, i cant take them offline now for a filesystemcheck.
now my questions:
anyone has seen such trouble too?
is the 200GB too big for rsync?
if the filesystem on the source-RAID inconsistent, i copy them to the
if someone need the output of rsync or fsckor my rsync-settings, i can
