    • Cant get rsync to work from UI (but command line ok)

      I am having issues getting rsync to run from the OpenMediaVault GUI even though it works without a hitch through the command line. The intent is to syncrhonize (pull) a directory residing on a remote machine on to one of my OMV drives. The errors when running an rsync job configured through the UI is below. I know I can always put the command line in a crontab as a workaround. However do want to understand why the one through the UI is failing.

      Error Running rsync from OpenMedia GUI:

      rsync: Failed to exec rbose: No such file or directory (2)
      rsync error: error in IPC code (code 14) at pipe.c(84) [Receiver=3.0.9]
      rsync: connection unexpectedly closed (0 bytes received so far) [Receiver]
      rsync error: error in rsync protocol data stream (code 12) at io.c(605) [Receiver=3.0.9]

      rsync runs successfully from command line:

      root@Tower:/media/disk2/MacbookBackup# rsync -av --append-verify --progress imadansari@imads-mbp:Test /media/disk2/MacbookBackup

    • Single : means you're trying to contact the server through transport shell( ssh probably), not an rsync daemon.
      The current webui does not supprt that type of jobs, though is planned to added supprt for that using certificates.
      You need to run an rsync daemon server in imads.
