Your vaults didn't get initialized yet.
After you have set up the directory structure of banks and vaults, the
/etc/dirvish/master.conf file, and the ../BANK/VAULT/dirvish/default.conf
files (which it seems that you've done), you need to do a:
dirvish --init --vault VAULT
... for each of your VAULTs . You can do this with a script like:
for VAULT in tom_root tom_usr harry_root harry_home
dirvish --init --vault $VAULT
This will thrash and thrash, and move data at about 10GB per hour over
a 100BT network. USB2 connected drives will slow it down more. But
hey, what are weekends for? After the initialization, future backups
will go *much* faster.
I hope that gets you going. Welcome to Dirvish!
P.S. Thanks for a descriptive subject line and a concise writeup of
your problem. Meanwhile, I left an "--init" out of the initialization
script. I will post a correction to the site.
