We are trying to implement a directory synchronization process between several CentOS servers. It appears to be working except file/directory ownership/attributes are not being retained. Is there any documentation or sample instructions available that would tell me what I need to do in order to make sure that directories/files between systems are created/updated with the same ownership and permissions? Thank you.
Just bumping this ... can anyone tell me how this is done?
I don't think we preserve the user, group, or permissions on files. The files are just copied using the user running SymmetricDS. I entered an issue to try addressing this for version 3.7:
You could set ownership and permissions with an "after copy script" but I'm not sure how you'd get the information to the script about what to set.
Thank you for your response.
