I was about to post the below to the rsync mailing list, but wondered whether 
your code which captures rsync output may have allowed rsync to continue past 
what I think would normally be a fatal error?



P.S. Should I put the final backups of the old pearcey /home back into their 
correct slots - 5 backups were recycled, but nothing was added to them?  The 
.Snapshots area is pointing to the old locations.
Here are the recycles that need to be reversed:
Recycling /backup/pearcey-user-dumps/home_intel.20190606.seq.1687.recycle to 
Recycling /backup/pearcey-user-dumps/home_intel.20190608.seq.1689.recycle to 
Recycling /backup/pearcey-user-dumps/home_intel.20190605.seq.1686.recycle to 
Recycling /backup/pearcey-user-dumps/home_intel.20190609.seq.1690.recycle to 
Recycling /backup/pearcey-user-dumps/home_intel.20190603.seq.1684.recycle to 

Rsync Folks,

We recently encountered a case with rsync hitting what I regard as a 'hard' 
error (unable to change_dir to the source), but it did not immediately abort, 
but continued and went on to hit other errors (which I regard as soft) and 
returned the error code 23.  Our backup suite continues after error 23, because 
it is common and usually not a problem.
Here is selected output.

          rsync: change_dir "/home_intel" (in backups) failed: No such file or 
directory (2)
          rsync error: some files/attrs were not transferred (see previous 
errors) (code 23) at main.c(1637) [Receiver=3.1.1+csiro-sc.4]
          rsync: read error: Connection reset by peer (104)

Should rsync have aborted after encountering error 2?
