[Solved] RSYNC: Invalid argument, falling back on umask

Postby LawsonTech » Sun Oct 30, 2011 9:40 am

Summary
Backup Assist 6.2
Windows 2008 rsync to FreeBSD with ZFS

Error Example
default_perms_for_dir: sys_acl_get_file(BackupAssist Exchange/.catalogues/.nt_streams, ACL_TYPE_DEFAULT): Invalid argument, falling back on umask
default_perms_for_dir: sys_acl_get_file(BackupAssist Exchange/2011-10, ACL_TYPE_DEFAULT): Invalid argument, falling back on umask
default_perms_for_dir: sys_acl_get_file(BackupAssist Exchange/2011-10/.nt_streams, ACL_TYPE_DEFAULT): Invalid argument, falling back on umask

Fix
Click JOBS
Right click your RSYNC job and click edit
Select Rsync options
In the Extra rsync options field add:
-p
Click apply

Conclusion
man rsync
-p, --perms preserve permissions
Permissions need to be preserved in ZFS else the Invalid argument/umask error appears

I hope this is helpful to someone in the future.
