CR> Some people have had success with scripting replication using rsync etc.

I don't want this to sound like I'm arguing, because I'm not.
I'm just not aware of ANYONE who has gotten rsync to work properly
handling all the EA's and such in syncing any Samba4 AD filesystems
between AD members.

I've seen specific complaints about rsync *not* handling the EA's
properly, and comments from Jeremy that fixing rsync would be fairly

But I'm not aware of anyone that has successfully done so.

I'd be very glad to be proved wrong, as this is on my list of "to-do"
items and knowing it was possible and how would save me a lot of


CR> Samba 4 doesn't currently have FRS enabled and so doesn't replicate SYSVOL.
