>From the local machine the following command is executed:
/usr/local/bin/rsync -aHnuv serverX:/ / --exclude-from=/rsync.exclude --rsync-path=/usr/local/bin/rsync --ignore-existing > /var/tmp/rsync.stdout 2> /var/tmp/rsync.stderr
I have never used the rsync command. The above command was used by a former sysadmin to "synchronize" two servers. However when I ran the command it did not produce any "dry -run" output ("n" option). A check of the /var/tmp/rsync.stderr shows the following output ws produced: "rsync: connection unexpectedly closed (0 bytes read so far); rsync error: error in rsync protocl data stream (code 12) at io.c(165)."
Based on the above syntax, what was included/excluded that made this not work, and what is the correct syntax to "sync" the local machine to the remote?
In advance, thanks for the help.
