NAME

       cdist-type__rsync - Mirror directories using rsync

DESCRIPTION

       WARNING: This type is of BETA quality:

       · it has not been tested widely

       · interfaces may change

       · if there is a better approach to solve the problem -> the type may even vanish

       If you are fine with these constraints, please read on.

       This  cdist  type  allows  you to mirror local directories to the target host using rsync.
       Rsync will be installed in the manifest of the type.  If group  or  owner  are  giveng,  a
       recursive chown will be executed on the target host.

       A  slash  will  be  appended  to  the  source  directory  so that only the contents of the
       directory are taken and not the directory name itself.

REQUIRED PARAMETERS

       source Where to take files from

OPTIONAL PARAMETERS

       group  Group to chgrp to.

       owner  User to chown to.

       destination
              Use this as the base destination instead of the object id

       remote-user
              Use this user instead of the default "root" for rsync operations.

OPTIONAL MULTIPLE PARAMETERS

       rsync-opts
              Use this option to give rsync options with.  See rsync(1)  for  available  options.
