I have been running about eight cron'd rsynchs from a server in Bangalore to a server in Dublin daily for the last number of years, successfully. Recently however something strange has started to happen.
The synchs all fire off at the same time basically. The first synch of each time fails, as follows:
spawn /usr/bin/rsync -av -e ssh --delete --bwlimit=0 buzz:/cvs/AppDev/ /cvs/AppDev/
ssh_exchange_identification: Connection closed by remote host rsync: connection unexpectedly closed (0 bytes read so far) rsync error: error in rsync protocol data stream (code 12) at io.c(165)
send: spawn id exp3 not open
(file "/root/cvssync" line 6)
The next cronjob email I get, which is twelve seconds later, completes. If I run it manually it completes. If I change the first cronjob in the list, that is the one that fails.
Anyone have any ideas?
