I need to have a set of directories on server A copied to server B each night. At present:
I have a share on server A which is mounted on server B
a job run by cron on server B copies each directory and its contents from A to B, preserving permissions.
After the first run, some files fail to copy because of the permissions.
rsync would be good, but it doesn't exist in Solaris 10.
Note: If SSH/SCP is part of the answer, please could you include or link to info on how to configure it (beginner level please!) SSHD is running on both servers, but SCP either reports 'Permission Denied' if I specify batch mode, or else it simply prompts 'Password' and rejects every password I try.
