In order to connect to a server via ssh and run a specific command, all you need is ssh "command" In your case, you want to copy a file (it overwrites by default) so you want the cp command. It works like cp /path/to/original /path/to/copy. Now, you said in your comments that trying this gives you a permission denied error. This means that you will ...

But with sudo it would, but being run after ssh, it never gets password input for it on the remote server, so the solution is use -S and pipe a password for sudo as follows: ssh server " cd path/to/directory ...

I think the only thing you're missing is to initially include all directories leading to the archive dirs, ie. also --include='*/'. This is because excluding a directory (with '*') excludes everything below it rsync --include='*/' --include='**archive/***' --exclude='*' -avzh /xx/inbound/ /yy/inbound Apart from that, you shouldn't need 2 sets of '-avzh'


It looks OK. Although why are you using the -z option to compress the transfer? This option is normally used when you are copying to a remote rsync server over a slow network. In this instance it will compress and instantly decompress the files which will only increase your CPU uage with no benefit. The -a (archive) option implies the --progress and -r ...
