I am trying to make a mirror backup of the master server (OES2 with NSS
volume called DATA)

I have setup a SLES server to Rsync

I can manually enter the command rsync etc and it works but prompts for

My rsync command is

rsync -az -e ssh root@MAIN1:/media/nss/DATA/ /backup/MAIN1 --verbose
--progress --stats >>/var/log/Backup-MAIN1-$(date +%Y%m%d).log

How do I stop it from prompting for the password in SLES/OES2? Is it SSH?

Everything I read talks about a


folder on the remote server, but I get an error when I try to do it

Want to end up using CRON on this

I'm confused

I am new to linux we just migrated from NetWare

ssh can authenticate using public/private keys instead of a password.
Do a search, there is lots of information available about setting it
up. Here is one link I found.

SSH keys is the exact way that I do this for a client, works like a treat once it's set up

shouldnt take you more than a few minutes, it's a weird feeling logging in with no password for the first time though...
