I want to sync a full server (/) to our storage server using Syncthing. How can i set-up that / on the server i want to sync syncs to for example /home/server-hostname/? (Couldn’t figure that part out, thanks!)
Start by reading the docs and the getting started guide. Also, syncing a full server won’t work, as there are stuff in /proc, /sys and other places which are not real files, also syncing syncthings database will potentially corrupt it or go into a never ending loop.
Also Syncthing will not preserve file ownership. On the storage server, every file will be owned by the user/group which is running Syncthing.
