This guide, https://wiki.samba.org/index.php/Rsync_based_SysVol_replication_workaround, demonstrates sysvol replication using a rsync PULL. Is there a reason why a PUSH directly onto the /var/lib/samba/sysvol is a bad idea?
I have spend the better part of an hour setting up the PULL, but the “secrets file” causes endless problems (password mismatch although they are cut-n-paste). When finally got the secrets file right, another issue came up
Feb 15 18:12:42 AD2 rsyncd: connect from AD1.hoganas-platslagaren.se (10.0.2.50)
Feb 15 18:12:42 AD2 rsyncd: rsync to SysVol/ from root at AD1.hoganas-platslagaren.se (10.0.2.50)
Feb 15 18:12:42 AD2 rsyncd: ERROR: module is read only
Needless to say, the Sysvol share on AD2 is declared as “read only = no"
Reverting to an rsync push with ssh certs works fine though… But there maybe a catch that I don’t see.
