    • rsync --time-limit=120 (or any other number) 'unknown option' ???

      when I set up an rsync job in OMV GUI with extra option --time-limit I get an error message in the email notification like this:

      Source Code

      1. rsync: on remote machine: --time-limit=238: unknown option
      2. rsync error: syntax or usage error (code 1) at main.c(1551) [server=3.0.9]
      3. rsync: connection unexpectedly closed (0 bytes received so far) [sender]
      4. rsync error: error in rsync protocol data stream (code 12) at io.c(235) [sender=3.1.2]

      When I run an rsync job locally on my Ubuntu PC with this option it's no problem. Rsync versions on PC and OMV box are the same > 3.1.2

      The cron job on OMV seems to be OK:

      Source Code

      1. rsync --verbose --log-file="/var/log/rsync.log" --rsh "ssh -p 22 -i '/etc/ssh/openmediavault-2d26a655-541b-4817-bee8-16a07f5f491d'" --recursive --times --archive --delete --perms --time-limit=238 '/srv/dev-disk-by-label-RAIDVOLUME/Backup/ANTEC4100/' 'username@rsync.hidrive.strato.com:/users/username/UBUNTU' & wait $!

      Is this because a local rsync job behaves different from an rsync job to a remote server?

    • Ubuntu != Debian ... i assume Debian rsync simply does not support that option.
      Absolutely no support through PM!

      I must not fear.
      Fear is the mind-killer.
      Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration.
      I will face my fear.
      I will permit it to pass over me and through me.
      And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path.
      Where the fear has gone there will be nothing.
      Only I will remain.

    • Both my Ubuntu PC and OMV are based on Debian and rsync between those is no problem with that option.
      So, my guess is that the remote server, which uses rsync version 3.0.9 does not support it.
      But I can' t find anything about it in the release notes at rsync.samba.org.

      I have contacted Strato (remote server provider) about it, so I hope they can solve it.
