first of all, it is odd that rsync is not available by default.
so I happily found and installed the metapackages.
i logged in via ssh and verified rsync was available
but then getting it to work failed every time,
first the protocol is outdated
then i found i could specify where rsync is
a great tool to backup / distribute my virtual machines
Code: Select all
# rsync -auvvz --stats --progress --inplace --no-whole-file --bwlimit=4096k --protocol=30 --rsync-path=/ffp/bin/rsync -e "ssh -o StrictHostKeyChecking=no" /var/lib/libvirt/images/ email@example.com:/i-data/3717d9ee/public/VM/
