tl;dr: I’d like to know how to automatically either 1) restart Syncthing, or 2) rescan folders just as if synchting was restarted, when folders are marker as “STOPPED”. I think there are some timing issues with the mounting of my folders and the starting of Syncthing.
I’m using the
linuxserver/syncthing docker image via portainer.
I’m no expert in containerization, but my setup seems to work perfectly fine. I’ve been using Syncthing for years and everything is as expected (e.g. permissions are alright).
My only issue is that after a system reboot, all folders in synchting are “STOPPED” and I get the “folder path missing” error for each. If I run a command line in the container (using portainer), I can verify that I can actually read/write/execute files in the folders.
I can fix this issue by simply restarting the Synchting container, hence why I think that it’s an issue of timing between the mounting of my backup volume and the starting of Syncthing.
I’d like this situation to be fixed automatically so that I don’t have to restart Syncthing manually after each reboot. Rescanning the folders seems to do nothing even though I did check that read/write/execute works fine in the container.
This is a synchronisation and backup server (I know Syncthing isn’t a backup plan, another tool does the backups) and as such forgetting to restart Syncthing could be very bad; I’d like this to be a set it and forget it kind of deal.
Any help is welcome!
PS: thanks for all of your work. Syncthing is really a joy to use and among my favorite softwares.
