Maybe expand on what you're seeing as the platform having 'all its files' synced? But it could even be a feature, not overriding source changed on the dest.
Which sounds like it's not obeying the rules of rsync in just test: without --upadte, you _always_ transfer all files, no matter what. For my taste, there is a golden rule for aegir platforms: - Dont touch them by hand!
[DEST] Access via remote shell: Pull: rsync [OPTION...] [[email protected]]HOST: SRC... [[email protected]]HOST: DEST Access via rsync daemon: Pull: rsync [OPTION...] [[email protected]]HOST:: SRC... Rsync is a fast and extraordinarily versatile file copying tool.
Summary: set up passwordless ssh and use '-e ssh' to tell rsync to use ssh instead of rsh to connect to the remote host.Also, a difference of file format between the sender and receiver is always considered to be important enough for an update, no matter what date is on the objects.Rsync is a useful command line utility for synchronising files and directories across two different file systems.Rsync finds files that need to be transferred using a "quick check" algorithm (by default) that looks for files that have changed in size or in last-modified time.Any changes in the other preserved attributes (as requested by options) are made on the destination file directly when the quick check indicates that the file's data does not need to be updated.
