I have 2 Ubuntu servers running Syncthing version 1.23, each having NFS version 3 mounted lustre file systems where users’ home directories are. We need to sync all the users’ home directories between these two servers. The issue is that even with capabilities set (CAP_CHOWN,CAP_FOWNER,CAP_DAC_OVERRIDE), Syncthing running as any user other than root encounters “permission denied” errors starting with the creation of the .stfolder and .stignore, preventing sync process from starting. When I tried syncing folders on local drive (i.e. not NFS mounts) Syncthing worked fine with non-root, unpriviledged user.
Has anyone run into such an issue before and is there a solution? Thanks for any help/suggestions you can offer!
