Rsync problem

Install  rsync on two Redhat 5.0 server. Try to sync a folder to another server but I get the error below :

Does rsync keep a log for identifying the root cause of the problem ? Any other information / logs for diagnosing the problem ? Tks

[adm@pzon log]$ rsync -avz -e ssh /home/adm/  adm@plog01:/home/adm
ssh: connect to host plog01 port 22: Connection timed out
rsync: connection unexpectedly closed (0 bytes received so far) [sender]
rsync error: error in rsync protocol data stream (code 12) at io.c(600) [sender=3.0.6]

The error means you could not complete an SSH connection to the other system.  Try to SSH to the system.

If you want to log something in rsync you can add "--log-file=FILE" to your command, something like:

rsync -avz --log-file=$HOME/.rsyncd.log' -e ssh /home/adm/  adm@plog01:/home/adm

Open in new window

Or to log the remote side (if you have a connection) can be something like:

rsync -av --rsync-path="rsync --log-file=/tmp/log" -e ssh /home/adm/  adm@plog01:/home/adm

Open in new window
