If you ever need to use sudo with rsync to copy files from a remote host, this is how:

$ rsync -e 'ssh -tt' --rsync-path 'sudo rsync' remote:path .

First, --rsync 'sudo rsync' tells rsync to use sudo on the remote host. That alone not enough since sudo requires a TTY. With -e 'ssh -tt', we can have rsync ask SSH to create a pseudo-terminal. You need two -t since SSH has no pseudo-terminal when invoked by rsync — the second -t asks SSH to force the creation.

As far as I'm aware, this only works if sudo does not ask for a password: when I use it with a host where sudo asks for a password, I see a "protocol version mismatch -- is your shell clean?" error from rsync.

My last couple of laptops were Lenovo's. May have to re-think that when planning the next one. I assume Linux would bypass this altogether but it is still a pretty crummy move.
