difference between Rsync Jobs and Scheduled Jobs

  • Hi all,


    What is the difference between

    Services | Rsync | Jobs

    and

    System | Scheduled Jobs

    ?


    I understand that the first are for rsync only, the second one is more versatile (any command).

    Can I add rsync to scheduled jobs instead if I know the command? Will it work?

    Which way is preferred in OMV and why?


    Thanks.

    Greg

    Yes you can. Yes it will. I don't think there is an "official" preferred way. I do a rsync from a scheduled job to back up my main drive to a backup drive on the same machine. You can see the command in my signature below my post

    Simple and sure backup and restore: In a Scheduled Job: rsync -av --delete /srv/dev-disk-by-label-SOURCE/ /srv/dev-disk-by-label-DESTINATION/ (HT: Getting Started with OMV5)
    OMV 5 (current) - Hardware: Thinkserver TS140, Nextcloud, Plex, Airsonic, Navidrome, Ubooquity, Digikam, & Heimdall - NanoPi M4 (v.1), backup - Odroid XU4, Pi-Hole (DietPi) - Testing/Playing: hc2, xu4, Pi 3B+, Odroid H2. Mac user trying to convert to Linux on a HP dx2400, Debian 10 XFCE.
