It is not obvious but the rsync --help
rsync --help|grep port
--port=PORT specify double-colon alternate port number
--port does not do anything at all actually for some strange reason it still uses 22
You have to specify a manual ssh command to make it work:
-e 'ssh -........
This is a common issue, what if a issue shouldn't have root but you want to use that user to make a full backup of a system? They of course need root access.
You can actually just give them passwordless sudo access to rsync in /etc/sudoers:
sudo vi /etc/sudoers
yourusername ALL = NOPASSWD: /usr/bin/rsync
Here is how you would execute rsync:
The key thing for the remote host is to........
Enter your login passphrase:

1.) Replicate the number of partitions in your new drives.
I created 3 partitions of the same same size.
partition #1: +1G (/boot)
partition #2: +60G (swap)
partition #3: rest of it (/)
#note if you are using GPT/gdisk you need to create separate a partition at least 1MB in size (in my case I would a 4th partition and mark it type ef02).........
Here is the scenario you or a client have a remote machine that was installed as a standard/default minimal Centos 6.x machine on a single disk with LVM for whatever reason. Often many people do not know how to install it to a RAID array so it is common to have this problem and why reinstall if you don't need to? In some cases on a remote system you can't easily reinstall without physical or KVM access.
So in this case you add a second physical or disk or already ha........
I've used rsync again for this because I found it very simple, I've only excluded the Cache directory since it's not necessary and could be several GB in size.
rsync -Phaz --exclude=Cache/* firstname.lastname@example.org:/home/user/.mozilla/firefox/profile.default/* /home/user/.mozilla/firefox/ec1n9opl.default/
