I am running syncthing v1.0.0 on a number of devices (Windows 10 PC, Windows 10 Laptop, local Ubuntu 16.04, VPS Ubuntu 18.04, Smartphone, Tablet). To isolate the problem, I deactivated all devices except Windows PC and VPS Ubuntu.
If I create a file on my PC, it is synced to VPS (virtual private server in the cloud). Any update of the file creates a conflict with the PC’s node name as part of the conflict file. This happens under these conditions
- file watching on
- file watching off
- syncthing stopped while updating the file The file is synced and after a while the conflict comes back from the remote machine.
Steps to reproduce: Change a text file on PC and save it.
My assumption is the problem is caused by the VPS setup. Synced files are located on a mounted samba share, mounted with mount.cifs. The mount command is mount.cifs -o seal,user=$USER,pass=$PW //$SERVER/$SUBDIR $MNTDIR
Is there any way to get more detailed information from the remote VPS to further analyze this issue?
