Subject: [gentoo-user] Rsync backup problem2
Date: Thu, 09 Mar 2006 11:59:40
1 I have mounted a networked usb drive to /mnt/network using the command:
2 mount -t cifs -o user=paul // /mnt/network
3 I then use:
4 rsync -Cav --delete --progress --exclude '*tmp*' --exclude
5 '*Trash*' /usr /mnt/network
7 All files copy with no errors but symlinks always fail with the message:
8 symlink "/mnt/network/usr/lib/" ->
9 "" failed: Operation not supported
11 I am wondering if this is a permissions problem.
12 My network usb server will not let me have a user called root so I have set
13 user paul with the 'can do anything' previlege.
14 The mount and rsync commands are using user root
16 Can anybody help please.
17 Paul
