    rsync assistance


    Ok here we go.

    I have mounted remote drives and I am trying to get rsync to just sync certain directories within these mounted folders.

    Example:
    /mnt/bkmasterbackup1
    /mnt/bkmasterbackup2
    /mnt/bkmediabackup1
    /mnt/prodnas02
    /mnt/prodnas03
    /mnt/prodnas04
    /mnt/prodnas05

    Inside these mounted drives I have a folder called DR
    Example:
    user(at)machine# pwd
    /mnt/prodnas02/ArdentHS/DR

    Im trying to just sync /mnt/prodnas02/*/DR/*

    What Im trying to use is ..
    rsync -rhu --progress --include-from=/root/rsync-include/drfolders --log-file=/var/log/copy.log /mnt/prodnas02 /mnt/backup01/

    within my drfolders file I have something like
    /*/*/DR/*

    I've tried several different lines and include or exclude lines but for some reason I am truley missing something.

    Any assistance with the syntax would be great.

    Thanks in advance.

    I'm learning to use rsync myself

    Here is the best example file that I've found:
    excluding directories from rsync

    To understand the patterns, read this:
    rsync MAN Page

    For the man page on patterns:
    http://gd.tuwien.ac.at/utils/admin-t...ync/rsync.html

    (scroll down to "INCLUDE/EXCLUDE PATTERN RULES")
    .
