I create a full direct clone with asr and am working at differentially
updating that clone with rsync. The main problem I have is that unless
(in rsync) I exclude at least /System/Library/CoreServices/* I get the
"System/Library/CoreServices/BootX": Operation not permitted (1)
rsync error: some files could not be transferred (code 23) at
Occurs on the second (not the first) and following differential clones
No material that I can find suggests excluding
/System/Library/CoreServices/* no doubt with good reason, but I do
already have it on the clone from the full asr clone. My concern is if
anything might change in /System/Library/CoreServices/* in-between full
clones that I should catch in the differential update to maintain the
consistency of the clone (consistency of system information - not
directory vs actual data).
I use asr for the full clone because with the device level block
transfers is is so much faster.
Is there onother work-around?
