using sol8 sparc platform with recommended patch set from sun.
dloaded/installed rsync and popt(prerequsite) from sunfreeware.com (bin for
# pkgadd -d ./popt-1.7-sol8-sparc-local all
# pkgadd -d ./rsync-2.5.6-sol8-sparc-local all
can rsync locally but cannot rsync over network ; can rcp over network
can rsync locally :
oracle at sys2:/apps/oracle/dba> touch test
oracle at sys2:/apps/oracle/dba> rcp test test2
oracle at sys2:/apps/oracle/dba> rsync test test3
oracle at sys2:/apps/oracle/dba> ls
test test2 test3
cannot rsync over network :
oracle at sys1:/oracle> rcp nenxdba2:/apps/oracle/dba/test . <==
oracle at sys1:/oracle> rsync nenxdba2:/apps/oracle/dba/test .
ksh: rsync: not found
rsync: connection unexpectedly closed (0
bytes read so far)
rsync error: error in rsync protocol data
stream (code 12) at io.c(165)
==> this error happens for both normal user and root
Trying from/to sys1/sys2 ; does not work either way.
downloading source and compiling creates another set of errors/problems !
Any idea ?
