cmsync(1m)cmsync(1m)NAMEcmsync - Synchronize files or directories on multiple Serviceguard
SYNOPSIScmsync [-rv] [[-n node_name]...] [src_node:]src_file [...]
DESCRIPTIONcmsync copies files and/or directories to multiple Serviceguard nodes.
cmsync is limited in several ways. cmsync is best suited for situations
where other remote copy facilities are not available. For a more full
featured tool for copying files between Serviceguard nodes, see ccp(1m)
provided by Distributed Systems Administration Utilities.
To use this command, the local user must have the root access role on
each of the involved nodes. For more information on Serviceguard access
control policies, see the manual, Managing Serviceguard.
To use the cmsync command without specifying -n options, the local node
must be configured into a Serviceguard cluster. If no -n options are
specified, the files will be copied to all available nodes in the clus‐
Paths may be relative to the current working directory or specified
absolutely. Copies between two remote hosts are permitted.
If a file or directory already exists on a destination node, the desti‐
nation node's copy will be overwritten with no prompting.
The cmsync command is not suited for large files or large numbers of
files and may result in a heavy load on the command and Serviceguard
daemons. Other tools such as ccp should be considered for these pur‐
Options And Arguments
