I would like to use a CentOS VM for a mirrored full backup of my CentOS mail server. Both are the same version and are up-to-date. I have found that without excluding certain directories the VM backup has kernel panic attacks and fails to load.
I use the following command to start the process:
rsync -avz -Kl -p --numeric-ids --exclude-from=/rsync_exclude.txt -e 'ssh -2 -c blowfish-cbc' email@example.com:/ /
- Will there be any issues with the command being entered above?
- Which directories should I include in my "rsync_exclude.txt" to prevent issues on the VM backup?
