I want to mirror a samba server (smb0) to a identical server (smb1) in 
my internal network. So far I can managed to do this from client (smb1),

rsync -e ssh -auzpg /home
rsync -e ssh -auzpg /srv

I would like to automate this task without entering root password. But 
I'm little confused. Should I setup rsyncd.conf from the server and 
setuid/setgid for access? Then initiate connection from client with 
above commands using CRON?
