  1. Update on further research: Changing the permissions to 777 has no effect. After changing the owner to rslsync and accessing the folder with Sync I can change the owner back to root and Sync can still access the folder. So probably Sync has some kind of internal database where it stores assumed permissions?
  2. I want to sync a folder which has the owner:group root:system and the permissions drwxrwxr-x (775). I've edited /lib/systemd/system/resilio-sync.service to run sync as user:group rslsync:system. I've edited /etc/passwd so tha the user rslsync has the group system. I've made a systemctl daemon-reload and a systemctl restart resilio-sync. Sync runs but won't write to the folder and says it has no permission. When I login as user rslsync I can obviously write to the folder because I have sufficient group permissions. Only when I change the owner of the folder to rslsync Sync can write to that folder. Ubuntu 18.04.2 LTS and Resilio Sync 2.6.3 installed with apt.
  3. Some more weird behaviour: I've created on each host a file with owner rslsync:staff and 664 permissions. On 3 hosts this doesn't sync and in the web interface I get the "locked files" error - Not enough permissions (lsof shows nothing). On another host all files sync. On the other hand, if I change the group permissions of the .sync folder from staff to rslsync everything works fine and if I sync to some new folder the group owner of everything is rslsync, so it seems Resilio Sync ignores the /etc/passwd, but other than the Yeasoft version of Bittorrent Sync there doesn't seem to be a possibility to change the group. And another step closer: after switching from systemd to sysvinit it works, but that can't really be the solution imho. Any systemd experts around...?
  4. I'm upgrading my sync installations on my servers from the yeasoft version (btsync 2.0.95) to the new official Debian/Ubuntu version (rslsync 2.4.4) and I'm encountering some weird permission issues. On some of my servers sync seems to ignore group permissions. Example: sync runs as user rslsync, group staff rslsync:x:104:50::/var/lib/btsync:/bin/false staff:x:50: I try to sync the directory /etc/nagios/nrpe.d/ root@Siamorphe:~# ls -alh /etc/nagios drwxr-xr-x 3 root root 4,0K Mär 11 15:10 . drwxr-xr-x 99 root root 4,0K Mär 15 06:44 .. -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 8,1K Jul 15 2014 nrpe.cfg drwxrwxr-x 3 root staff 4,0K Mär 11 18:17 nrpe.d -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 117 Jul 15 2014 nrpe_local.cfg root@Siamorphe:~# ls -alh /etc/nagios/nrpe.d drwxrwxr-x 3 root staff 4,0K Mär 11 18:17 . drwxr-xr-x 3 root root 4,0K Mär 11 15:10 .. -rw-r--r-- 1 rslsync staff 1,8K Mär 11 18:17 custom_checks.cfg drwxr-xr-x 3 rslsync staff 4,0K Mär 15 06:42 .sync On most hosts this works but on one it doesn't, I get "Don't have permissions to write to selected folder" root@Sharess:~# ls -alh /etc/nagios drwxrwxr-x 3 root staff 4,0K Mär 15 09:51 . drwxrwxr-x 90 root staff 4,0K Mär 15 09:38 .. -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 8,0K Mär 11 14:38 nrpe.cfg drwxrwxr-x 2 root staff 4,0K Mär 15 09:51 nrpe.d -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 117 Jul 15 2014 nrpe_local.cfg root@Sharess:~# ls -alh /etc/nagios/nrpe.d drwxrwxr-x 2 root staff 4,0K Mär 15 09:51 . drwxrwxr-x 3 root staff 4,0K Mär 15 09:51 .. If I change the login shell of the user rslsync to bash and manually try to write to this folder that works without problem (as it should, because of the group permissions). The working servers are Ubuntu 16.04 or Debian 8, as is the broken one. The only apparent difference I see is the kernel: broken: Linux Sharess 3.16.0-4-686-pae #1 SMP Debian 3.16.39-1+deb8u2 (2017-03-07) i686 GNU/Linux works: Linux Deneir 3.16.0-4-586 #1 Debian 3.16.39-1+deb8u2 (2017-03-07) i686 GNU/Linux works: Linux Siamorphe 3.16.0-4-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 3.16.39-1+deb8u2 (2017-03-07) x86_64 GNU/Linux works: Linux Gond 4.4.0-66-generic #87-Ubuntu SMP Fri Mar 3 15:29:05 UTC 2017 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux Nevertheless, on one of the servers where this folder works (Gond), I get for some other previously working folders the don't have permissions error. Somebody got any idea what could be the problem here?
