We're using rsync 2.5.6 version 26.
Want to synch two W2K directories which are not on my machine (machine1 synchs machine2 -> machine3)
I would like to synch the 2 direcories with the following syntax:
rsync.exe -rva //remote_server1/share$/dir1/default.asp remote_server2::dir2/
When I try this it seems to work:
building file list ...
1 file to consider
send_files failed to open //remote_server1/share$/dir1/default.asp: No such file or directory
No files have been synched!!!!
When I connect the remote drive to my machine with
Net use x: \\remote_server1\share$ <\\remote_server1\share$>
Then use the cygdrive syntax (as follows)
rsync.exe -rva /cygdrive/x/dir1/default.asp remote_server::dir2/
Everything works fine!!!!
Because I run this synch as a batch job I would like to connect directly with the UNC path.
Does anyone know how to do that?
