I'm running 2 ubuntu 9.10 servers. I have to synchronize the changes between these two machines. The following are the directories I've to synchronize:
/usr, /etc, /var, /bin, /sbin, /lib
I'm using rsync like the below for replication:
rsync -avP 192.168.2.100:/usr/ /usr
rsync -avP 192.168.2.100:/etc/ /etc ------here I'll have to exclude many files like /etc/udev/*, /etc/hosts, /etc/hostname,...
I tried using
rsync -avP --exclude '/etc/fstab' 192.168.2.100:/etc/ /etc but it overwritten entire /etc directory
Can any one edit and give me rsync to one line command which synchronizes specified directories and not which are excluded?. Need help!
