I install the rsyncd service (without apparent error) using:
cygrunsrv -I "rsyncd" -d "CYGWIN rsyncd" -p /c/cygwin/bin/rsync.exe -a"--config=/c/cygwin/etc/rsyncd.conf --daemon --no-detach" -f "Rsyncd daemon service on Port 873" -e CYGWIN="ntsec" -t manual
Then when I run (as admin): cygrunsrv -S rsyncd, I get the following error
cygrunsrv: Error starting a service: QueryServiceStatus: Win32 error 1062:
The service has not been started.
The Windows event viewer gives the following information:
The description for Event ID 0 from source rsyncd cannot be
found. Either the component that raises this event is not
installed on your local computer or the installation is
corrupted. You can install or repair the component on the local
If the event originated on another computer, the display information
had to be saved with the event.
The following information was included with the event:
rsyncd: PID 5896: `rsyncd' service stopped, exit status: 255
NOTE that I have no trouble starting the rsync daemon manually using the
rsync --config=/c/cygwin/etc/rsyncd.conf --daemon --no-detach
Any ideas on what might be wrong?
