Permission issues with Resilio 2.5.5 on Synology DSM 6.1.2

Recommended Posts

After upgrading to Resilio 2.5.5 I noticed that files failed to sync and permission issues in the logs.  Specifically the logs show "file is locked by another application" and "Failed to download - initial recheck".  Back in the days when btsync ran under Admin on Synology, I had chowned all my sync folders and files to admin:users.  I see now that Resilio runs under rslsync and that rslsync is in the administrators group.  What permissions should my folders and files have for Resilio to run successfully?  Thanks in advance!

you need change ownership of those sync folders to rslsync user account.

if your synology nas supports docker, strong recommend to use resiliosync docker container instead of package. Just mount the sync folders and no longer have the permission issues.

I'd like to try the Docker version, but it looks like it hasn't been updated to 2.5.  In the meantime, I followed your suggestion and moved Resilio to an Ubuntu server and set the user and group of the cifs shares to rslsync:rslsync, which resolved the permissions issues.  Thanks!

you can create a github account, fork that official one and modify the version number to 2.5.5 (no coding skill needed). Then create an auto-build repo on docker hub so that you can create a docker image by your own with the latest resiliosync.
