GPO issues (rsync sysval?)
« on: August 10, 2020, 09:26:49 pm »
We have 2 Zentyal domain servers running (Controller and an Additional)
I am trying to work on our Domain Group policy by adding some OU's with their own GPO's.

It does not seem to be working. After hunting online I read that you had to set up Rsync to copy the SysVol files.

Does anyone know if this is correct with version 6.2? I don't want to make things worse!

Here is the site I was sent to;

Yes, it's the officially proposed workaround. It doesn't depends on the samba4 version.

PS: Bear in mind that it isn't a bi-directional solution. Only one of the sysvol is synchronized in the rest of the sysvols, so, the GPOs have to be ever created in the "one" domain controller.

Cheers!

Great thanks.
I went to get started and already ran into a problem. It says to add /usr/local/samba/var/locks/sysvol/  as the path, but there is no local/samba/ folder. Does Zentyal place it somewhere else

Code: [Select]
sudo find / -iname sysvol -type d
...
/var/lib/samba/sysvol

In general, if you have to search in the filesystem tree, use the find command: https://danielmiessler.com/study/find/
