How can I provide SSH password for rsync job?

  • I am trying to run an automated rsync job that I can administer in the OMV4 GUI.

    The rsync plugin has many good parameters but I cannot find a way to provide the SSH password for an encrypted rsync.

    When I use the "password" field in the GUI screen, I get permission denied errors. And the GUI says that this password is only used for the rsync deamon (unencrypted).

    How can I provide an SSH password in the rsync OMV screen?

  • ok thanks. I managed to get it to work but the email notifications are not going out although email notifications work well from other OMV services.

    Any ideas?
