Rsync connection lost

  • I'm having an issue where my Rsync is running (doing a remote pull) and theconnection to the source is lost momentarily. the rsync connection dies but doesn't get an exit code and just hangs with no message or warning X/.


    trying to restart the Rsync just returns an error. currently the only solution I have is to reboot OMV and then restart the Rsync.


    any help with being able to close the connection and restarting it without rebooting would be a great help. making it automated would be best

  • i am having the same issue. There is no feedback here :(

    I think OMV frequently causes some sort of LAN issues and that causes rsync to fail.

    OMV4 on ProLiant N54L + 5 x 3.5'' WD/Seagate HDs

    OMV5 on Raspberry Pi4

  • I had a similar issue with rsync between my Synology and OMV on Raspi

    by using the "-v" option I finally received a "timeout" error

    I then used the following 'advanced' or 'extended' options with some success (but it still fails from time to time):


    -avr --timeout=0


    timeout=0 means infinite time


    maybe that helps you to improve the experience ...


    btw.: if s.o. knows howto set the "keepalive" Server and client options with rsync on OMV I would be glad to get your advice
