    Default Zimbra Live Sync

    Hi there

    Ive been testing Zimbra Live Sync as per instructions found here: Server Live sync - Zimbra :: Wiki

    After a few tests i must say im quite impressed. The sync was seamless. Everything was in there: mails, accounts...

    But im having a little issue running "live_syncd" on the "ex-live" server. Let me explain.

    We have "live server" and "backup server". We run live_syncd on the BACKUP SERVER and it starts syncing with the LIVE server via ssh (after creating keys).

    When LIVE SERVER fails, the procedure is simply to stop live_syncd at the BACKUP server and start zimbra there. That is working just fine. live and backup are now reversed.

    Now i want to fallback to my ex-live server. The procedure is to start live_syncd on the ex-live, let it catch up with the changes and start zimbra on it, but running live_syncd on ex-live is throwing an error:

    "Permission denied (publickey,gssapi-keyex,gssapi-with-mic,password)."

    And i cannot fallback to the original server. I know its related to ssh keys but i cant find the reason why. /opt/zimbra/.ssh/ is identical at both servers.

    Any clues?

    Thanks.

    Check the ownership and permissions of the .ssh folder. If the private keys, in particular, are not owned by zimbra with 600 perms it will fail.

    Also, make sure you are using the latest version of the script that I uploaded to the end of this thread. The Wiki is currently locked to editing for maintenance which means that I can't update the script there or even warn anyone on the Wiki page that it is out of date.
