This isnt my first time using Syncthing. Ive used it from phone to PC and vice versa and it works great with no sync issues. The issues im experiencing with Syncthing is between 2 Ubuntu 16.04 servers with Syncthing ppa.
- Using one folder between Server A and Server B and Server A being in Send Only mode
- Both servers have an already exact copy of that folder of many TB’s of data.
1.First and foremost, it takes about 6 - 7 hours to build the index and all that - during which trying to see whats happening on Server A web Gui or refreshing it - the gui becomes mostly unresponsive or ‘connection error’ i have to refresh a couple of times or wait a few minutes and then it will refresh. Ive reported an error regarding this - where the first time i sync’d i could not get the gui back up so i restarted the server, no one has responded to that issue: 9203
2.Second problem is, that after it supposedly finished with the index and hashing of files. I was left with the dreadful message on Server A:- “Out of Sync Items 8615 items, ~970 GiB”
That above message is an example. the number varies, as this is the second time i am resyncing everything(ie. i deleted the index folder on both servers and started again).
3.Override button does nothing on master(Server A). Those “Out of Sync Items” will just sit there on Server A and wont change. Yet Server B eventually becomes ‘Up to date’
4.Server B’s Remote Device section of Server A sits at a certain percentage and never moves, yet the folder says “Up to Date” - That should not happen because Server A’s folder to my understanding is in Send Only mode.
5.The Address on Server A or Server B sometimes changes to a different port, event though i have specified what port and IP it must connect on. I dont understand why that is happening, and mostly dont understand how it can communicate on a different port when only port 22000 is open on both servers.
Server A (when in Send Only mode) should not show Out of Sync items if Server B claims everything is “Up to Date”. And id say that both folders on BOTH Servers are up to date, its just the message ‘Out of Sync’ that gets stuck on a certain number of items. Override button should work as expected but it doesnt.
Ive tried removing index folders on both servers, only to wait another 7 hours to do this and land up in the same situation. it claimed 7 hours at the start but its been more than that.
Can someone suggest an alternative way in terms of forcing items to not be 'out of sync’on Server A rather than removing the Index folders again? If this is still a bug can this be fixed ASAP? because im relying on it heavily for keeping servers in sync with Server A being in Send Only mode.
