I don't think you want to put quotes around the entire path just the part with 
spaces:

not 
dest="/home/testdest/dir name" or "dest=/home/testdest/dir name/"

but try

dest=/home/testdest/"dir name"

variables get treated as literal strings (in most languages)

try just using the /dir1/dir2/"dir 3"

Subject: copy with spaces...


I am having some trouble with copy commands like this;

copy:
        /home/test/dirname/ dest="/home/testdest/dir name" recurse=inf

it doesn't like the space, not one bit;
<error message>
cf:cfengine::/var/lib/cfengine2/inputs/cfagent.conf:63: Image 
"/home/testdest/dir needs an absolute path
name
cf:cfengine::/var/lib/cfengine2/inputs/cfagent.conf:65: Image name" needs an 
absolute pathname
cfengine:roe252-135:/var/lib/cfengine2/inputs/cfagent.conf:Execution terminated 
after parsing due to errors in
 program
</error message>

I've tried various quoting;
dest="/home/testdest/dir\ name/"
"dest=/home/testdest/dir name/"

I've tried with and without the trailing / on the destination.

nothing works.

is cfengine 'copy' capable of copyihg to destination directories with spaces in 
the name?

I've verified that its possible to create directories with spaces in the names 
using;

directories:
        "/home/testdest/dir name"


Thanks!
