I would like to share
/etc as a send-only share. Syncthing is running as root.
I get the message
2022-11-27 15:41:21: Failed to create folder marker: mkdir /etc/.stfolder: read-only file system 2022-11-27 15:41:21: Error on folder "/etc" (33xty-7zqtz): folder marker missing (this indicates potential data loss, search docs/forum to get information about how to proceed)
Is there something specific that prevents
/etc to be shared (built-in to Syncthing)?
This is a standard Debian machine, with other successful shares and I do not see a reason why Syncthing running as root could not create the expected directory:
root@router ~# file /etc/.stfolder /etc/.stfolder: cannot open `/etc/.stfolder' (No such file or directory) root@router ~# mkdir /etc/.testfile root@router ~# file /etc/.testfile /etc/.testfile: directory
Interestingly enough, I see on the machine I want to share
/etc to the message
router wants to share folder "/etc" (33xty-7zqtz). Add new folder?
which means that somehow
router sent a share advertisement (but sending the advertisement and actually sharing may be independent (though I think they should not be))
