I am trying to rsync some directories on my linux server to a Windows 7 share mounted locally on the Linux server at /mnt/backups.
My rsync command looks like this:
rsync -avz --progress --partial --modify-window=1 --temp-dir=/tmp /home /mnt/backups
When it executes I get this:
building file list ... 165048 files to consider rsync: ERROR: cannot stat destination "/mnt/backups": Cannot allocate memory (12) rsync error: errors selecting input/output files, dirs (code 3) at main.c(507) [receiver=2.6.9] rsync: connection unexpectedly closed (8 bytes received so far) [sender] rsync error: error in rsync protocol data stream (code 12) at io.c(453) [sender=2.6.9]
I've searched around and the only tips I've found were to add
--temp-dir options but those haven't made any difference.
For the record, I've had similar problems trying to tar a backup file to this mounted location which is why I wanted to switch to rsync. I suspect Samba is causing these problems but everything looks fine on the surface. Not sure what else to do from here...
