Update: Never mind, i figured it out. I just deleted the folder i was trying to select as the target and re-created it from the PI and it worked fine. Must have been some weird permissions thing with mapping an NFS share from a windows server to a Linux client or something sync didn't like about it OK, so I'm having issues getting sync to write into a mounted NFS share on Linux. first some background: there are 3 machines involved. 2 windows servers (one is 2016, the other 2008) 1 Raspberry PI The Server 2016 server is a host on my network and is my main file server and database server The Raspberry PI is a host on my network in the DMZ and is the one running sync The Server 2008 server is a VPS that has files i want to back up from semi-regularly and is also running sync my issue is that if i expose an NFS share on the Server 2016 box, then mount it on the Pi, i can write to said share with any user (even running sudo -u nobody touch /mnt/VPS-backup/test.text works absolutly fine), however sync reports that i don't have permissions to write to said folder when i try to add a manual connection. So I'm wondering, is this kind of thing not possible with sync (ignoring the obvious issue that if sync starts and the NFS share isn't mounted, it may just assume the folder is empty and sync the VPS server accordingly, which is fine because a script copy's the files to be backed up into a temporary folder which is synced) or am i missing something?
I have an Illumos NAS at home (OmniOS) as a VM. Another VM is an Ubuntu 12.04.4 LTS x64 VM. On OmniOS I have a userdir (ZFS DataSet) that has 3 folders (Documents, Pictures, Videos). Each of these folders is NFS shared to my Ubuntu VM as my user (same UID=1000). That same OmniOS zfs dataset/userdir is shared via CIFS. So as an example: OmniOS Ubuntu CIFS from OmniOS /tank/joltman/Documents /home/joltman/Documents \\10.0.0.50\joltman\Documents I have btsync (1.3.92) on the Ubuntu headless server VM. It shares out the /home/joltman/Documents to other btsync devices (my Windows 8.1 x64 Pro laptop). I can successfully, add/change/remove a file on my laptop and the file will get pushed to the Ubuntu server and it's changed successfully. Awesome! However, if from another Windows machine, I push a file to \\10.0.0.50\joltman\Documents\, my laptop will not update the file (even after 10 minutes). If I restart the btsync daemon, the file gets updated. If I login to the btsync webpage on Ubuntu, the file gets updated. It doesn't seem to happen automatically. I don't think this is a huge issue, but it's something I noticed. It's most likely an issue because I'm pushing a file to the CIFS link (which runs through OmniOS) and not to a SMB share from the Ubuntu VM. I'm just curious if others have had this issue and if there's anything I can do to solve it? Thanks!
