#109 "Part to Remote Part" Defining Source/Target


I am trying to clone a partition on machine A (sda1) to a partition on machine B (sda5) using a ethernet crossover cable.

Machine A:
ocs-onthefly -r -rescue -fsck-src-part -v -k -a -f sda1

Machine B:
ocs-onthefly -s -t sda5

The relevant error message appears on the client(target):
Restoring sda5 from
No file system was found in /dev/sda5!

Machine A has only one drive with one partition (sda1). Machine B has one drive with multiple partitions (including sda5).
It seems like 'it' is ignoring the -f option on the source machine and assuming the source partition number matches the target partition number--this is not correct in my case and obviously very limiting in what can be done with remote partition cloning.
