umask and uid synching of files

Recommended Posts


I am a very happy user of resilio-sync.  I own root on run each and every computer (only macos and linux) .    The uid's are the same on all computers (old unix habit). 

for linux, I can set /lib/systemd/system/resilio-sync.service with a user of 'root'.

Alas, I have not yet figured out the following.  I would like all changes in permissions, uid, and gid be synched appropriately everywhere.  that is, for example, if I 'chmod g+w file' on one computer, it should appear so on all synched computers.  if I 'chown root thisfile', it should appear so on all other computers.

could someone please let me know how to set this?  presumably, these would be certain settings in /lib/systemd/system/resilio-sync on linux?!  and what do I need to do on macos?
