Problem using --fuzzy with --*-dest flags
2014-03-07 00:42:49 GMT
I'm trying to get the --fuzzy option to work with --compare-dest with rsync 3.1.0.
I'm testing with two files. "C_VOL-b001-i3818.spi" and "C_VOL-b001-i3816.spi" are copies of one another, but I've modified the latter a bit with a hex editor as a test. The modified date is still the same.
This works for me (fuzzy is utilized against the 3816 test file):
rsync --fuzzy --fuzzy -vv C_VOL-b001-i3818.spi rsync://user <at> localhost/SHARENAME/dest
Contents of SHARENAME/dest: C_VOL-b001-i3816.spi
This does not work:
rsync --fuzzy --fuzzy -vv --copy-dest=../alt C_VOL-b001-i3818.spi rsync://user <at> localhost/SHARENAME/dest
Contents of SHARENAME/dest: <empty>
Contents of SHARENAME/alt: C_VOL-b001-i3816.spi
I do get complaints that:
"file has vanished"[...]"[..]alt/C_VOL-b001-i3816.spi" (in SHARENAME)"
...so it does appear to be seeing the contents of the "alt" folder. Fuzzy isn't being run against it, however.
I'd appreciate any insight on this.
PS: I posted another thread having to do with issues with the --debug=FUZZY flag, but I think that's a separate issue so I'm posting this separately for clarity.
