I've tried using the environment variable to change csync2's behavior, but with no success. In my case, csync2 running under xinetd seems to not find the configuration file, which is in /etc/csync2/csync2.cfg (this is where it was placed from the RPM install from Yum).

Thanks for the reply!

I appear to have the latest version of csync2 (1.34), but setting
CSYNC2_SYSTEM_DIR didn¹t seem to change the behavior, and if I do a
Œstrings /usr/sbin/csync2¹ the string CSYNC2_SYSTEM_DIR doesn¹t appear to
be in the executable.

Note that my version of csync2 doesn¹t even seem to support the ‹help
option described.

Any ideas?

First, I was unable to search for an answer in the ³lurking² archive.
The link from http://lists.linbit.com/mailman/listinfo/csync2
(http://archives.free.net.ph/list/csync2.html) did not lead to a
valid page.
My question is: I¹d like to specify the directory where csync2 should
get the configuration file from instead of being forced to maintain it
in /etc. Putting it in /etc generally means having root access and I¹d
like to be able to install and maintain my application without
requiring that. AFAICT from the documentation my request is not
possible. Is that correct?
http://oss.linbit.com/csync2/paper.pdf
(also, the csync2 --help output and the csync2 man page -- though likely
not in the version you have installed, because you obviously checked
that first) documents the environment variable CSYNC2_SYSTEMD_DIR for
exactly that purpose.
Argh. It happened again... NOT systemd... ;-)
CSYNC2_SYSTEM_DIR
