Rsync errors

I am getting errors with my Rsync errors.  Nothing has changed in my setup or settings. Any Ideas?

 

This is a backup job between two identical NAS box's  RN314 with latest firmware 6.9.0

Both have over 1TB of free space.

Connection tests successfully.

Re: Rsync errors

My own rsync backups worked with no issue on 6.9.0.

 

Though you likely already did this, you might confirm that destination NAS IP address didn't change.  If the NAS use NIC bonding, perhaps try temporarily breaking the bond.

 

You could also try rebooting the destination, and see if that makes any difference.

Re: Rsync errors

Both NAS boxes had bonded NIC connections.  I have removed the Bonded settings and will try again.

 

Thanks.  Is this a issue with the latest firmware?

There were issues with bonding - and Netgear pushed out some hot fixes.  I think there are more network fixes in 6.9.1, so you might want to upgrade to that.

Re: Rsync errors

I don't see the 6.9.1 is avalible yet.  Is it still in Beta?

No, it is released - but I don't think it's being pushed through the update servers quite yet.  You can get a manual install here: https://kb.netgear.com/000051531/ReadyNAS-OS-6-Software-Version-6-9-1
