rsync - specify source or destination
|Reported by:||MilhouseVH||Owned by:|
When creating rsync jobs, it is only possible to "push" data from the FN8 server to a remote server, it is not possible to "pull" data from the remote server to the FN8 server.
It should be possible to specify whether the FN8 server is acting as the source or destination when the rsync command is being executed - a simple checkbox would suffice. Currently, jobs created in 8.0.1-BETA1 can only be created with FN8 as the source.
Depending on the value of the source/destination checkbox, the rsync command would be modified as follows
|Source||rsync /mnt/share/data backupusr@backup-server::backup-data|
|Destination||rsync backupusr@backup-server::backup-data /mnt/share/data|
It really is as simple as inverting the source and target parameters on the rsync command line.
