Problem using rsync on a nslu2
I'm trying to transform a nslu2 in a debian/rsync backup of my workstation.
I have created a rsync script on my workstation that backup over ssh to the
nslu2. This script is an adaptation of a script I use to bakup different
workstations on my home lan.
the rsync options are :
OPTS="--log-file=$LOGFILE --force -v --ignore-errors --progress --delete-excluded --exclude-from=$EXCLUDES
--delete -a --timeout 360 --rsh=ssh"
The problem is that the rsync script fails after a while with this error
rsync: writefd_unbuffered failed to write 4 bytes [sender]: Broken pipe (32)
rsync: connection unexpectedly closed (1276 bytes received so far) [sender]
rsync error: error allocating core memory buffers (code 22) at io.c(632)
According to the rsync faq : http://samba.anu.edu.au/rsync/issues.html
Question 3 the cause of the error may be that the ssh shell drops.
I have tried to create on my workstation a .sss/config with :
but the problem is still there.
I guess that there are some options needed on the nslu2 openssh
configuration for ssh_config or sshd_config.
Does anyone has some experience with this problem ?
PS : rsync version on the nslu2 is 3.0.3 and on my workstation 3.0.4
