I'm trying to rsync files and directories from a RedHat linux host(v 4.5
& 4.7) to a Windows server 2003R2 Standard Edition with cygwin running.
I'm executing the rsync command from the cygwin shell. The transfer
involves rsync'ing approximately 1 TB of data from the linux server to
the windows server. After about 280+GB of data transfer, the transfer
There seems to be no particular file or directory that the transfer
stops at. I'm able to rsync GB of data from other linux hosts to this
cygwin server with no problem. Files and directories rsync fine.
The network infrastructure is essentially the same regardless of the
server being rsync'ed in that it is GB Ethernet running through Cisco GB
switches. There appear to be no glitches or hiccups across the network path.
I've asked the folks at rsync.samba.org if they know of any problems or
issues. Their response has been neutral in that if the version of rsync
that cygwin has ported is within standards then there is no rsync reason
this problem should happen.
So, my question is whether the version of rsync that is ported to cygwin
is standard. If so, is there any reason cygwin keeps failing like this?
I've asked the local rsync on linux guru's and they can't see any reason
this should fail from a linux perspective. Apparently I am our company
cygwin knowledge base by default.
Looking for some help or guidance. Your time and consideration is
