I have server1 of which I would like to backup some slices/directories to a backup server2 that in fact is a mirror of the one that I want to backup. I don't allow root logon from prompt on Server2. Can someone tell me how I can force rsync to backup server1 without having a root login permission on Server2?
Use anonymous rsync? There's a section on rsyncd in the rsync(1) man page, but most of the meat is in the rsyncd.conf(5) man page. The downside is you'll lose information about user and group ownership of files. Oh, and obviously be careful about limiting where people can access the rsyncd server from, or your precious data may go on an unplanned walkies...
