Scenario: I backup my zimbra server using RSYNC to a NFS share (another server named BACKUP next to it, connected using a switch over gigabit). I do the RSYNC and looks good - no errors at the end that I can tell.
I have another server (I call ARCHIVE) that is in another building (off site) but still connected by gigabit network. My standard procedure is to do the backup to the backup server, then copy this backup to the ARCHIVE server (off site backups done the easy way).
OK - so I go to copy the backup folder to ARCHIVE and a whole bunch of files will not copy. I get an ERROR "UNSUPORTED OPERATION..." then the filename. There are over a hundred of these. The first couple are:
and on and on...
Once done - I look at the properties of both folders:
Backup is 26.1g with 313,273 files.
Archive is 26.1g with 312,990 files.
So I am basically missing about 283 files after the copy operation (they won't copy).
First Question - what can cause this? The fact that ARCHIVE is an SMB share? Something to do with permissions? RSYNC? I've copied larger files to the SMB share before with no problems.
Second Question - I tried to move my Zimbra install to new hardware about a week ago using roughly the same procedure (RSYNC to BACKUP, then on the new server RSYNC from BACKUP etc). I couldn't make this work and am wondering if this could be related to why.
Thanks for any and all help,
