/usr/local/bin/rsync: Argument list too long

This error occurs very often while you give something similar below :

rsync -avz server1/source/directory/* root@destination/dir/

Resolution :

Remove the * and simply give the folder name :

rsync -avz server1/source/directory/ root@destination/dir/

 

Enjoy !!! 🙂
