hi

I have a script with this line:

rsync -avz -e ssh  --delete root@$SRC:/home $DEST/master.d

 that brings files from a remote server to my home. Im expecting that if a file is deleted from $SRC/home, then it would get deleted from $DEST/master.d

Is that correct?
If not how should i do it?

thanks

Your assumption is correct.  Is the delete not happening?

no I remove a file, say bla.tar.gz, from $SRC/home/myhome/, but after running rsync, its still there as $DEST/master.d/myhome/bla.tar.tz
for trouble shooting purposes im executing as root (so $DEST is at my house and $SRC is across the atlantic) - so dont think theres a permission prob
ideas?
