I’m just looking to sync 3 directories that are samba/nfs shares between 2 file servers.
The fileservers are just SAMBA3 servers handing out file shares as SMB/CIFS/NFS for our workstations/laptops. Our goal is to have these as redundant pairs…that are in sync. They are with in the same site so that latency won’t be much of a problem.
/home <–UCS/SAMBA4 user (employees) home directories (Both Windows and Unix/Linux user home directories)
/public <–General working directories of company
/beb <–Departmental working directories of company
I was thinking of this method…
Rsync from FS1 --> FS2
wait 15 minutes
then Rsync from FS2 --> FS1
then wait 15 minute and start over with this process.
I’d have a script added to our backups that would stop the RSYNC processes during the backups of FS1 and FS2, so that backups would be stable.
I am not looking to sync sysvol as that is already done within UCS/SAMBA4 on the Master and Backup/Slave domains.
Unless there is a free tool out there that does sync both FS1 and FS2, either as things change or a regular intervals, and only syncs changes.
