Subject: Re: [CentOS] Issues with successfully completing rsync with msync.centos.org

I am trying to establish a mirror, and when I execute the rsync command, it only
creates the directories and selected files. It does not download the entire iso
collection or repo files.
And which rsync command?

JD

    The rsync command on the CentOS website, on the page that tells you how to setup
    a mirror.
    The one with --exclude "isos" ?

    I have been using this one:

    *rsync -aqzH --delete msync.centos.org::CentOS **/path/to/local/mirror/root*

    If I can, I want to mirror:

    mirror.optus.net/centos

    as it is nearer my mirror server and the internet connection for the server
    is through Optus (in Sydney, AU).

    A few notes:
    the -z should not do much since most files are compressed...
    You could save some bandwidth by using -P or --partial in case of an interruption.
    And maybe -l to keep symlinks.
    Replace -q with -v to see what is going on.
    Use -n to test more quickly.
    mirror.optus.net does not seem to offer rsync...
