Dear All,

I probably have missed some announcement, so my apologies for asking what
I should know already.

Which higher tier mirror should I use to rsync CentOS (including DVDs) to
public mirror I maintain?

I was sorting out hardware problems of my box that serves public mirrors,
and I discovered that I use probably outdated source to rsync from.
Namely, here is my rsync line (in longer cron job):

$rsync -aqH --exclude .~tmp~/ --exclude .~tmp~ --delete\
 msync-dvd.centos.org::CentOS-incdvd /data/mirror/centos

- and I'm getting the following error:

@ERROR: Unknown module 'CentOS-incdvd'

Independent on this error I also have a bit strange answer in DNS
resolution of msync-dvd.centos.org:

# host msync-dvd.centos.org
msync-dvd.centos.org has address
Host msync-dvd.centos.org not found: 2(SERVFAIL)

I would appreciate any help or pointers.

Thanks in advance for a
