rsync module is read only
« on: January 15, 2016, 08:59:47 PM »

I have set the account and connection to my Synology NAS station. Server is sucessfully connnecting to it but it  can't really save any backup file (but directories are made!).

Here's the output of the backup command:

Code: [Select]
ERROR: module is read only
rsync error: syntax or usage error (code 1) at main.c(1034) [Receiver=3.0.9]
rsync: connection unexpectedly closed (9 bytes received so far) [sender]
rsync error: error in rsync protocol data stream (code 12) at io.c(600) [sender=3.0.6]
sending incremental file list

Is this something on my server or on my NAS? I found a tip to set the relative directory in rsync configuration file but there's nothing like this on my server.

Thanks for any help

are you using the admin user on Synology? because you have to, there's no other chance on DSM

Thanks for the tip.

I have created special user for the backups.

Just checked the admin user and the same thing. SSH ok, directories created, no files transferred with error "module is readonly".

root user can't log in via SSH. His home directory is /root. I'm afraid if changing it will not break my DSM and I don't want to store backups there.

Checked chmods, checked home directories permission and seems to be ok there. I have no idea what is going on.

PS. Chmod 755 and chown to admin on cwp_remote directory didn't helped.
