------------------------------------------

10.10.10.210 is powered off
above errors coming from the primary FN that has rsync service off as the 10.10.10.210 was off

Why am I getting errors??? Any ideas?

Nope, I haven't, and I'd say if we need to do that for a service that's off is quite interesting. The rsync task shouldn't run if the service is off. Simple flag check would prevent, but that's only my programmer brain talking.

There are two ways to use rsync.. rsync to send and rsync to receive.

Rsync to send uses the rsync tasks. Those must be disabled (and this is what is giving you the errors you are seeing).

Rsync to receive uses the rsync service (the on/off switch you say is off). That can be on or off, and so long as nobody ever tries to send you something through that, you'll never get an error message.

Hope this explains things. :)

First let me thanks the forum for jumping in my rescue!

I did realize later that was treated as a "client/server" kind of deal, where the server is the service controlled by the options on your services tab and the client side that seats on the other machines, been called by cron or another process to run and start the sync process. That second one is what is telling me it can't find the server on the other box.

Would be nice to have a on/off switch controlling the client side :)
