I don't know what's causing the connection to be lost, but since it happens with all protocols now, AFP, CIFS, NFS and iSCSI, it's a problem with the server. I think the data transfer is just overwhelming the virtual machine and it becomes unresponsive... but I'll ask another question, probably on the unix&linux stack exchange.

Bah! Just as I was typing that this is working great, the connection was lost. But I still have hope for this solution...

Ah, I see, you're mounting the directory and rsync ing locally! I was trying to rsync from the Mac to the server! I will try this and get back to you.

This is a fantastic idea. I'll try that after I finish work for the day!

Hmmm, I'll have to look into that! The reason I'm "re-inveting" TimeMachine, FYI, is that TimeMachine requires a large USB drive for each machine, and in our setup we don't have that, rather, we have a massive onsite backup RAID.

That's what I was doing -- and CCC was running rsync and I was getting the same I/O errors :-(

When you dump your drive to the network drive, what hosts the network drive? OS X? Linux? How do you connect? Samba? AFP? Do you use CCC direct to the network drive, or, do you go to a DMG on the network drive?

No matter what I have tried, I can't get rsync to copy the resource forks, I think because the ZFS system doesn't support them... I'm not sure. I first tried with a Debian kBSD server, but have switched to Nexenta (OpenSolaris kernel + Debian core) because it has NFS and Netatalk support.

Unfortunately, when I use CCC for an incremental backup, it just runs rsync and I get the same result :-(

comment Using a shared DVD burner
Can you even share a DVD burner like that? I wasn't aware of any way to do that? How are you sharing the burner?

To copy on Mac, you use Command-C, not Control-C
