[Bug] Sync Creating Fresh Id On Every Boot

Recommended Posts

So, running btsync on linux (64bit nixos), it is creating a new identity everytime I reboot the server.

The btsync user:
btsync:x:113:498:Bittorrent Sync Service user:/srv/data/btsync2:/run/current-system/sw/bin/nologin

 

His home directory:

drwx------ 1 btsync btsync 252 Apr 14 14:48 /srv/data/btsync2

 

The config file:

 

{

 "device_name":     "fancydevicename",

 "storage_path":    "/srv/data/btsync2",

 "listening_port":  45654,

 "use_gui":         false,

 

 "check_for_updates": false,

 "use_upnp":          false,

 "download_limit":    0,

 "upload_limit":      0,

 "lan_encrypt_data":  true,

 

 "webui":

{

 "login":    "admin",

 "password": "reallysecurepasswordhere",

 

 "listen": "0.0.0.0:9000"

}

 

}

 

I start btsync:

 

btsync --nodaemon --config btsync.conf

and look in it's home directory.

 

[btsync@albion:~]$ ls -lA /srv/data/btsync2

total 2356

login, accept the licence + create identity (hitting the first bug: it prompts me that there is a new version despite "check_for_updates" being false), the directory now looks like:

 

[btsync@albion:~]$ ls -lA /srv/data/btsync2

total 2396

I add a test share; all seems good. Restart the service: yup, all OK here.

Reboot the machine and when logging into the gui, I get the licence box again.

 

If I click through (the only option), my shares are gone, and looking in ~btsync a new SyncUser dir has been created:

 

drwxrwxr-x 1 btsync btsync      78 Apr 14 14:49 .SyncUser1429022966

drwxrwxr-x 1 btsync btsync       0 Apr 14 14:59 .SyncUser1429023540

 

How do I stop it generating a new ID for itself?
