Syncing Across Macosx In Configuration Mode

Recommended Posts

Sync Version: 2.2.7

OSX Version 10.11.2

 

I'm trying to sync across a cluster of mac mini servers without success. Ultimately, I'll run it via a launchd daemon, but I'd like to verify it works within the terminal. I've followed the instructions here to run in configuration mode without success. No logs are generated and no sync occurs. The below output is consistent regardless of whether or not I use '--config' or the how settings are configured. I've come across some posts in older versions that says it's not supported, but the URL above would seem to imply differently. As a side, but perhaps related, note, the command line options don't seem to work at all, e.g., '--generate-secret' does nothing. The docs don't indicate that it's restricted to Linux.

 

Please note that when running the GUI remotely via RemoteDesktop, it works perfectly across the cluster.

cnkeller, yes "--generate-secret" option is available for linux only. thank you for reporting about that we'll improve our KB article.

I suspect that something is wrong with configuration file. You can contact us via this form and send your config file (replacing secret and IP addresses with *** if you want). Then we'll check it and tell you how to fix it.
