    i tried the instructions from KM0201. But no luck. nothing shows in the rsync jobs logs.


    i see the entry in the /etc/cron.d/openmediavault-rsynd


    Code
    root@raspberrypi:/etc/cron.d# cat openmediavault-rsync
    SHELL=/bin/sh
    PATH=/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/sbin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin
    # m h dom mon dow user    command
    0 20 * * * root /var/lib/openmediavault/cron.d/rsync-745097b0-1360-414c-9261-78c                                                                                                             fab989fab >/dev/null 2>&1
    root@raspberrypi:/etc/cron.d#


    as an experiment set up job for 8 pm. any ideas?

    I have OMV 4.x installed on a Raspberry PI with two USB connected SSDs. USB devices are self powered.


    I have it configured and SMB access on one drive with the data. All works great. My intent is to Rsync every night from SSD1 to SSD2. Essentially a mirror copy of the data.


    Is there a guide on how to create Rsync via the GUI? I mean what do those settings for the time, day, date etc mean? Default is *. What does * meaN? I created a job but it would not trigger. If I manually attempt to run it ran (I think it did, but I cancelled since I wanted to test the automation). My intent is to trigger the rsync operation every night at 2 AM.


    I am somewhat familiar with Rsync on the command line, But I am setting this up for a friend of mine. His use case is simple. He wants some network drive on his wifi to dump all the pics & videos he clicks with his phone. And he wants two copies.


    Any ideas on how to set up Rsync to trigger an rsync operation at a particular time of day?
