Clone or sync whole Zentyal 6.0
« on: October 18, 2019, 07:29:57 am »
Is this possible, i want to setup two zentyal server, the other one is in the production and the other one is for backup server..

I want to clone or sync whole zentyal server(file share, username etc) in another zentyal server, the reason of this is when zentyal in the production was failed or got error, i can use the clone server, i only need to sync the servers every 10pm ..

Why not setting them up as domain controller + additional domain controller and use Rsync Sysvol replication for keeping them at the same level + copying over whatever file shares you need?

Some info here

Be careful if you want to have the file shares in 2 places - you may end up with inconsistencies if your users are able to write on both.

Maybe you'd rather like the file share on the second "backup" server to be hidden or read-only.
