rsync: send_file cannot open sudoers error
I was hoping someone could help me with the following problem I am having. I am syncing two servers to a master server using rsync. From one server the rsync works fine, no problems at all.
From the other server however, I get the following:
rsync -ar --verbose rsync://10.16.12.145/sync-dir /var/www/html
receiving file list ... done
send_files failed to open sudoers: Permission denied
wrote 95 bytes read 209643 bytes 419476.00 bytes/sec
total size is 213968062 speedup is 1020.17
I cannot determine what would possibly be causing this permissions issue. I have a standard unaltered sudoers file with permission:
-r--r----- 1 root root 580 Jan 25 2003 /etc/sudoers
This is the same permissions as on the working server. Furthermore, it is not a problem with resolution, as it connects and gets a file list, it just cannot open the sudoers file for some reason.
Has anyone run into this before? I'd sure love some insight from anyone that may have an idea what the problem is.
Another thing: this used to work for years but is now a problem and there is nothing (that I can think of) that has been done to the server recently.
