I am moving some files from one server to another. The files are being
backed up on the first server and will be backed up on the second
server. I would like to pre-populate the second server's pc tree with
the files to eliminate a couple of days of data transfer.
I can easily use:
cp --link -R /backuppc/pc/server1/yy/f%2fhome/ffoo/fbar
but the attrib file in foo for server2 doesn't include bar. I can't
use the attrib file from server1 because the foo directory on server2
has files that are not being backed up on server 1 and therefore won't
be in server1/.../ffoo's attrib file.
What I need is something like:
Backup_zcat attrib | printattrib > fileattrs
filename filetype mode uid gid size mtime
that I can add an entry for bar to and then run
createattrib fileattrs | BackupPC_compress > attrib
Does anybody have any of the utility programs (printattrib,
createattrib BackupPC_compress) in their toolbox?
