my script running on a red hat machine copies gigabyte-sized files from a windows-based lab device to a NetApp archive. Both source and destination are cifs-mounted. In the context of a recovery testing scenario the network cable will be unplugged. After plugging cable back the script should resume the copy process at the point before network failure, i.e. without copying from the beginning.
a) which script solution is appropriate?
b) rsync appropriate?
many thanks for your help
