I need urgent help in copying database file system from UFS to ZFS file system from one server to another using RSYNC
on UNIX Solaris servers.

I need script written to accomplish this using Bash or Korn shell using rsync that I can put this job under crontab and it can complete its copying database file system,


Many thanks,

NFS share from one server to another, on the second server mount the share dir onto say /mnt. The script as follow:
umask 022
echo "Started copying database at"
/usr/local/bin/rsync -auvpogl /mnt/ /localdir
echo "Finshed copying at"

We do not use NFS in our environment.

Please eliminate option of NFS to provide short script to accomplish this using rsync as stated.
