Hello All,

I'm trying to create a cron job that would allow this rsync program to running nighly...
SSH is used to connect and a password is needed.(when I run the jon manually, I am prompted for a password) Can someone tell me how I would go about making this work in a script.

thanks, if you could email me at the answer, it would be great appreciated.

here is the sample rsync script.

rsync -Dlupog --recursive -e ssh /data1
rsync -Dlupog --recursive -e ssh /data2

I'm not sure if the previous post solved the issue or not. It seemed like it would, but if it didn't you could check this topic:

It has a link to another page on how to set up what you're looking for, as well as some other useful tidbits. HTH.
