I'd like to rsync (backup) a chroot environment from outside the chroot. For that I first make a lvm snapshot of the chroot volume and then run rsync on that.
The only problem with this approach: Symlinks that inside the chroot are absolute are now pointing to the outer-chroot-system and are of course not matching. Since I would like to use copy-unsafe-links, this leads to a false link resolution. Is there a way to make rsync resolve symlinks from another directory than the main root or is there another way to solve this?
