            Bug ID: 11646
           Summary: rsync incapable of copying corrupted filesystem
           Product: rsync
           Version: 3.1.1
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P5
         Component: core
          Assignee: wayned at samba.org

I'm trying to backup corrupted xfs filesystem (that cannot be repaired due to
bugs in xfs_repair) on linux 4.3.0

Anyway linux kernel is providing information about dirs and files for this
filesystem. Unfortunately some data is causing rsync to fail at assertion.

IMO rsync should be able to deal with anything linux kernel is providing to
userspace. Thus this bugreport.

cd /mnt/storage4/snapshots/blade3/
rsync -e ssh -avvvvvvvPH * root at host:/dest/snapshots/blade3/
