Why turn on the rsync daemon at all? This could easily be accomplished simply by running
rsync -HrlptgoDPvvS --force --delete --del --stats -e ssh root@IPADDRESS:/ /media/pre-backup/
Also, since -P includes --progress, there's no reason to call it a second time.
We don't have a root password set up on the Pre, it's using sudo therefore that's why ssh won't work. Rsyncd.conf gives the rsync daemon root privileges so it can mirror the device. I'm be open to suggestions, but I'm trying to make this fit in with the next steps guide and limit the number of steps.
Thanks for pointing out the redundancy on --progress.
Ahhh yes. I keep forgetting that not everyone set up keys for root access.
If you don't exclude some of the directories then the Pre reboots when the backup process touches them. -hmagoo
