Using scp only is there a way to copy multiple files at the same time? I have two 40G folders on a RHEL box that I want to copy over to my ESXi box. Rsync is out of option and scp is the only thing available.
If I use:
scp /files root@esx:/vmfs/volumes/storage
It will copy File_1 40G first and then once this finishes, it will start to copy File_2
I want to initiate both the 40G copy at the same time. I tried:
scp /file1 root@esx:/vmfs/volumes/storage && scp /file2 root@esxi:/vmfs/volume/storage
Still no go. One way I am using now is tar.zip the two folders and then moving them over. And then untar on the destination. Not efficient though.
Any thoughts? Thanks much
