Rsync

Does anyone know how to install the Netware Rsync modules on a NW6.5
server?

The problem is I installed Netware 6.5 without choosing the "Management
Server" from the Pattern Screen and now I want to add Rsync.

Any information is appreciated.

Re: Rsync


one of the following 3:

it's installed by default. no server handy right now to check that but
i'm going to guess it doesn't since you probably already tried to run
it and it isn't there.

2nd shot: you run the gui and pick add from the menu. you need the
products CD.

if it's not on the products CD - and I honestly can't remember off the
top of my head, then it's a download from download.novell.com. and if
it's a download, the readme will have instructions in how to install
it.

not very good ones - I think with SP2 or 3, they stopped putting rsync
when they stopped pushing that server on a cd product, branch office or
whatever it was called - and you don't get the NRM plug-ins unless you
install it from the NetWare CD

Re: Rsync

You can also find the files in the SP6 (nw65sp6\PRODUCTS\RSYNCSRV\RSYNC.ZIP).

Also, read http://www.novell.com/coolsolutions/tip/658.html, this helped me a lot.

Hope this helps...

Thanks to all of you for responding. I believe with all your information,

Re: Rsync

All this information is great and is exactly what I'm trying to do with my
remote sites, but I'm having trouble loading Rsync.

Here is what I have done by following the instructions in the links
provided:

1. I unzipped the rsync.zip and copied the results to sys:rsync.
2. Then placed the extracted files from rsync.zipsysetc into sys:etc and
rsync.zipsysrsync into sys:system on my RSYNC server and my source server.
And changed the attribute to read/write for all rsync files.
3. I made the necessary changes in rsyncstr.ncf, rsyncstp.ncf (on both the
source and destination servers) and rsyncd.conf (on the destination server)

Here is the problem:
I believe that to load rsync, I have to type rsyncstr.ncf at the server
console, so i did that and I get the following message:

Error: Echo.nlm must be started from the Bash shell
Module Initialization Failed

I created a backup.ncf file as specified in one of the links and ran it.
It auto loads rsync.nlm and blinks quickly, but no files are transferred.
It doesn't even create a log file in the location specified in the
rsyncd.conf file.

I also tried to telnet to port 873 on both the source and destination
servers and niether respond. IP and DNS are working fine on both servers.

Can you add any insight to what I'm doing wrong?

Questions:
1. In the rsyncstp.ncf file, do I have to put in the source or destination
server's ip address? I ask because in the instructions it says to enter
0.0.0.0 for the ip address.

Re: Rsync

For the 'ECHO' error.

If I remember right, I had to add a REM statement to the first line of the
file to remark out the ECHO command.

All the lines in my rsyncstr.ncf file are REMarked out except:

sys:rsyncrsync -v --progress --auth --port=873 --daemon
