I am trying to do a one-way sync from an existing volume mounted to my MacBook Pro (Mac OS 10.12.4, 16G RAM) to a volume mounted on a Windows 2016 Standard server. I have verified that I can do a two-way sync between the default folder on the Mac and the default folder on the server.
The folder I want to sync to is on the Windows server is Z:\ (a mapped share from my Synology NAS). The folder I want to from is a SMB mounted volume from a Ctera NAS that is mounted as /Volumes/production.
When I attempt to create the folder on the Macbook, I get the following error:
2017-04-14 15:22:54: Creating folder: mkdir /Volumes/production/: permission denied
2017-04-14 15:22:54: Creating folder marker: open /Volumes/production/.stfolder: no such file or directory
2017-04-14 15:22:54: Stopping folder “production on ctera” (txvqm-kdzam) - folder path missing
Syncthing appears to be trying to create a folder on the MacBook which obviously won’t work since the folder already exists.
What do I need to do to get Syncthing to recognize that the folder already exists that the I just want it to read the content of the folder and sync it to the Windows server.
Any help/pointer would be greatly appreciated.
