[SOLVED] scp copy from host to nas not working

Post by carlos08 » Sat May 04, 2019 11:13 pm

I am trying to copy files to my TS-251+ from a Linux Mint (Tessa) 19.1 computer (host) on the same sub-network. My objective is to save the files’ timestamps, and so I wish to use “scp -p” to do so. Skipping the “-p” option for the moment, I enter the following verbose command:

Code: Select all

scp -vvv /home/carl/test admin@192.168.1.8:/Public
The output received in the terminal is the following:

Code: Select all

Without the “-vvv” option, the only output is the single line in the above output that begins with "test" (namely, the file being copied). You would think that after this my test file would be in the nas’s Public folder. BUT it is not, nor--as best I can determine--is it anywhere else on the nas. Any thoughts on what I am doing wrong here?

Specify the absolute path to the ‘Public’ share on the target NAS [/share/Public].

Why not use rsync and Hybrid Backup Station? rsync will preserve timestamps.
Read the Online Manuals and use the forum search feature before posting.

It is a recommended to use RAID and have external backups. RAID will protect you from disk failure, keep your system running, and data accessible while the disk is replaced and the RAID rebuilt. Backups will allow you to recover data that is lost or corrupted, or from system failure. One does not replace the other.

Submit bugs and feature requests to QNAP via their Helpdesk app.

NAS: TVS-882BR | F/W: 4.3.6.0895 | 40GB | 2 x M.2 SATA RAID 1 (System/VMs) | 4 x M.2 NMVe QM2-4P-384A RAID 5 (Cache) | 5 x 4TB HDD RAID 6 (Data) | 1 x Blu-ray
NAS: TVS-663 | F/W: 4.4.2.1320 | 16GB | 2 x M.2 NMVe QM2-2P RAID 1 (Cache) | 4 x 4TB RAID 5

Re: scp copy from host to nas not working

Post by carlos08 » Tue May 07, 2019 3:52 am

Many thanks for responding, OneCD and Don. According to a drag-and-drop from nautilus to a terminal, the absolute path to the NAS’s Public file is '/run/user/1000/gvfs/ftp:host=nas.local,user=carl/Public'. (Note that my nas’s [unimaginative] name is ‘nas’.) Thus according to OneCD, the correct command should be:

Code: Select all

scp -vvv /home/carl/test /run/user/1000/gvfs/ftp:host=nas.local,user=admin/Public
The good news is that this worked! The bad news is that when I change the “-vvv” parameter to “-p”, I get the following error message:
cp: preserving times for '/run/user/1000/gvfs/ftp:host=nas.local,user=carl/Public/test': Operation not supported
So let’s move on to Don’s suggestion. As best I can tell, the rsync command should look something like this:

Code: Select all

rsync -av /home/carl/test /run/user/1000/gvfs/ftp:host=nas.local,user=admin/Public
After execution, this is what appears in the terminal:
sending incremental file list
test
rsync: failed to set times on "/run/user/1000/gvfs/ftp:host=nas.local,user=admin/Public/.test.xJsP1o": Operation not supported (95)

sent 103 bytes received 175 bytes 185.33 bytes/sec
total size is 6 speedup is 0.02
rsync error: some files/attrs were not transferred (see previous errors) (code 23) at main.c(1196) [sender=3.1.2]
Again, I get the same good and bad news. That is, the file is copied, but the timestamp is not preserved.

Something else that might be relevant: I can navagate to the nas’s Public folder with the following commands:

Code: Select all

ssh admin@nas.local
cd /share/CACHEDEV1_DATA/Public
If at this point I try copying the file as follows:

Code: Select all

scp -vvv carl@192.168.1.12:/home/carl/test /share/CACHEDEV1_DATA/Public
I then get this error:
Executing: program /usr/bin/ssh host 192.168.1.12, user carl, command scp -v -f /home/carl/test
OpenSSH_8.0p1, OpenSSL 1.0.2k 26 Jan 2017
debug2: resolve_canonicalize: hostname 192.168.1.12 is address
debug2: ssh_connect_direct
debug1: Connecting to 192.168.1.12 [192.168.1.12] port 22.
debug1: connect to address 192.168.1.12 port 22: Connection refused
ssh: connect to host 192.168.1.12 port 22: Connection refused
If I try rsync as follows:

Code: Select all

rsync -av carl@192.168.1.12:/home/carl/test /share/CACHEDEV1_DATA/Public
Then this is what I get:
ssh: connect to host 192.168.1.12 port 22: Connection refused
rsync: connection unexpectedly closed (0 bytes received so far) [Receiver]
rsync error: error in rsync protocol data stream (code 12) at io.c(601) [Receiver=3.0.7]
Obviously, I’m new to both scp and rsync, and so I remain totally lost at this point. Do you have any other ideas? Keep in mind that all I’m trying here is do a network copy between computer and nas that saves files’ timestamps.

Thanks again for your help so far, OneCD and Don.

No, not what I was suggesting. You may want to keep GVFS (and FTP) out of this as you're introducing an extra layer of complexity. ;)

Try this instead:

Code: Select all

scp -p /home/carl/test admin@192.168.1.8:/share/Public
BTW: is 'test' a file or directory?

Works fine here. Debian 9.9:

Re: scp copy from host to nas not working

Post by carlos08 » Tue May 07, 2019 5:52 pm

Many thanks for your help, OneCD. Both scp and rsync work beautifully, once I change the target to "admin@192.168.1.8:/share/Public". Also, you guessed correctly that "test" is a file. This anticipates my next question, however. How can I modify the scp (or rsync) command for copying directories? I experimented with adding slashes at the ends of both source and target specifications, but each time I get the following error message:
/home/carl/folder: not a regular file
I apologize, but I am really new at this.

Sorry, OneCD. There is no need to respond. The correct commands are easily found elsewhere. For completeness, the commands for copying folders are as follows:

Code: Select all

scp -pr /home/carl/folder admin@192.168.1.8:/share/Public

Code: Select all

rsync -av /home/carl/folder admin@192.168.1.8:/share/Public/
The scp command requires adding the "r" option; the rsync command requires adding a "/" at the end.

Again, many thanks for your help!

A final note: rsync has a GUI counterpart, Grsync. This can be set up to copy while preserving time and owner. (Note that you won’t be able to use [non-superuser] nautilus to delete a file copied to the nas, unless the file was copied with its owner preserved.) The GUI’s “Open” buttons allow you to browse for folders to be copied to or from your computer. Grsync provides a check box for “Browse files instead of folders” under its “Extra options” tab. Do not browse for folders or files on the nas, however. Instead, you will avoid errors if you manually enter the destination as shown above. Once files have been copied to the nas, you can use nautilus to move them among the nas’s folders without loosing the files’ timestamps. Pretty slick! :wink:

you can also use rsync via Hybrid Backup Sync which would be the preferred method.
Read the Online Manuals and use the forum search feature before posting.

It is a recommended to use RAID and have external backups. RAID will protect you from disk failure, keep your system running, and data accessible while the disk is replaced and the RAID rebuilt. Backups will allow you to recover data that is lost or corrupted, or from system failure. One does not replace the other.
