I've been using rsync for a long time, and it's very cool. For the
first time, last night, I got a message I don't understand. I am using
rsync 2.6.4 on Fedora (FC4) Linux to a Fedora (FC3) Linux machine. The
command I am using is:
rsync -av --delete-excluded --exclude="*~" --exclude="#*#" <source dir>
I got the following as part of the output of rsync:
failed verification -- update discarded (will try again).
What does the "WARNING" imply? What could have gone wrong? I cannot
reproduce it. When I did another sync immediately after, only the
directory was in the file list, and then I checked the file in question,
and it matched the source.
I saw mention of a similar error in an older version when using "-z",
but I am not using that.
