RSYNC testing/implementation

All,

I'll admin to being relatively new to the NetWare on a SUSE platform, but
I've been NetWaring for years. Tomorrow I'm going to attempt (in a test
lab) to get data from an OES NetWare on Suse/Linux to be copied to a
traditional NetWare system.

The Suse system (straight off the CDs, no patches) has an NSS volume and
I'll be attempting to get the data, using RSYNC, to a NetWare 6.5sp3 NSS
volume.

Both servers are in the same eDirectory tree. I've printed all that I can
find, and will burrow through it this evening.

So, I ask, does anyone have any experiences with RSYNC from a suse NetWare
server to a "regular" NetWare server?

thanks,
Loren.......

Not "to", but we have been using it "from" for a while now into our
Linux-based disk backup system. The one from forge.novell.com seems to
work pretty well, and we haven't had any real problems that I can report.

Well, in case anyone asks, it works to sync files from a NetWare OES Suse
File Server to a traditional NetWare 6.5SP3 File Server. Both the source
and destination locations are NSS volumes.

Just tightening up the logging so that we can confirm or refute that things
are continuing to happen as expected.

Hi Loren

Did you come right with this and document the procedure - I need to do the same!

Thanks

Re: RSYNC testing/implementation

Hi Colin,

Reading through the posts the OP is using SLES with OES installed, giving full Novell services through eDir & NSS.

I that scenario I'd recommend to stick to using the tools Novell includes (SCMT - the consolidation & migration tool or the migration Tool included in OES2 SP1).
RSync is a good tool, taking into consideration that it won't copy the meta data (rights, ownerships, etc). If you don't need the metadata to come over rsync, in general, will also be faster.

What exactly do you want to do?
