I have rsync command in my scripts:
rsync -av --delete --numeric-ids --relative --delete-excluded --exclude-from=/etc/exclude.txt --rsh=/usr/bin/ssh root@ec2-box2:/home/ /nfs/ec2-box/
But it says: Permission denied (publickey). Here is error log:
[2020-07-29T22:21:02] Permission denied (publickey). [2020-07-29T22:21:02] rsync: connection unexpectedly closed (0 bytes received so far) [Receiver] [2020-07-29T22:21:02] rsync error: error in rsync protocol data stream (code 12) at io.c(226) [Receiver=3.1.3]
Error only happens when the command run using shell script or cron job. At the shell prompt it works correctly. How to fix it? Please give suggestions.
