They all agree on the same answer.


My problem was that rsync was not being found on the remote server
once I put it under the right path everthing works fine.

Here is my original question:


I'm having some problem using rsync, here is my scenario:
Two servers: server A and server B, I'm trying to transfer
file from server A to server B, in other words just to keep
directory on server B updated with server A.

On server A I have created this file:

      /usr/bin/rsync /opt/sa root@serverB:/german/

when I run it I'm getting the following message:

sh: rsync: not found
unexpected EOF in read_timeout

I have ran it under csh/korn shells and still the same output. I have rsync
under /usr/bin and /usr/sbin.

Not sure what's going on here -Your help will be greatly appreciate it.

Thanks, Vinnie.
