I'm having issues trying to rsync files over from a build server to a web server.

the command im running is

rsync -e "ssh -i ${HOME}/.ssh/id_rsa" --rsync-path="sudo rsync" -avh --chown=nobody:webdev --chmod=Dg+s,ug+w --delete --exclude-from=deployment_rsync-excludes.txt ./ deploy-user@PROD01:/${my.application.web.root}/${bamboo.deploy.release}/

The CI agent throws this error

sudo: no tty present and no askpass program specified

rsync: connection unexpectedly closed (0 bytes received so far) [sender]

rsync error: error in rsync protocol data stream (code 12) at io.c(226) [sender=3.1.0]

If i tail -f /var/log/auth.log on the target server i get this error

server is running ubuntu 14.04.

Any help resolving this matter would be greatly appreciated

I believe the answer is in the log file

pam_unix(sudo:auth): auth could not identify password for [{deploy-user}]

{deploy-user} : user NOT authorized on host

I would make sure you can ssh deploy-user@PROD01

  • the user is managed by LDAP so in our sshd_config we get the users authed key like AuthorizedKeysCommand /usr/local/bin/ldap_keys.sh i think its something to do with not being able to sudo, but the servers cloned from another server where the deploy user has access – James Kirkby May 26 '16 at 15:24
  • Can you login with deploy-user on the server you trying to rsync to via ssh or terminal? If not, LDAP config might need to be fixed on that server before rsync / ssh will work. – prodigerati May 26 '16 at 15:47
