I've managed to setup a csync2 synchronization cluster with 4 servers,
and it mostly works beautifully. Whenever I run into conflicts, it
always seems to be quite a battle to fix the conflict, and sometimes I'm
just not sure what actually fixed (or even caused) the conflict.
The current situation is this: one of the servers is an FTP server,
with two others that replicate from it (via csync2) and one that has the
files shared via samba. A file gets created on the FTP server, then
deleted a few minutes later: the file has "ftpuser.ftp" for the uid/gid,
and 666 permissions. The servers synchronize once per minute so the
problem is difficult to track down, but it seems like the files get to
the other servers with uid/gid of "root.root" and permissions of 660.
The other servers mark the file as "chary" and don't delete the files.
I have to go manually delete the files, then the conflicts go away.
How can I narrow the source of this problem?
