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

We do not use NFS in our environment.

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

Thanks
