Re: Question/issue with Greyhole checksums command and cron

From a syntax standpoint, I don't think that something is wrong with the crontab entry, what are your thoughts?
It's fine. It's just that your cron environment is missing /usr/bin/ (or whatever your testparm executable is in) in it's PATH variable.

Re: Question/issue with Greyhole checksums command and cron

When I run the command manually from the command line the command executes just fine, however when I try to run it as a cron job I receive an error fsck: Found a share (Books) defined in /etc/greyhole.conf with no path in /etc/samba/smb.conf. Either add this share in /etc/samba/smb.conf, or remove ...

Re: Question/issue with Greyhole checksums command and cron

Additional question: If greyhole finds a differing MD5 on a file, how does it know which file is the "correct" file?
It doesn't assume anything, because it doesn't act on such errors; it will only reports them.

Re: Greyhole's lost loads of files. :( What other options?

No progress really. I'm experimenting with using ZFS datasets as storage pool drives on my own install, and if that's stable enough, I might start recommending that as the file-system to use for storage pool drives, since ZFS has a checksum features, which I'm pretty sure would prevent such problems...

What file-system are you using on the broken drive?
ext3/4? Journaled?

Re: Greyhole's lost loads of files. :( What other options?

Can you show me the part of your greyhole.log where that happened? If I still have the log, and you could point me towards what to look for in it, I'd be happy to. I'm not sure if greyhole.log gets truncated, as I often just look at the "tail", but it's currently at 144.7MB, and there are some zipp...

Re: Greyhole's lost loads of files. :( What other options?

Basically, I had 2 drives set up as "stickies" to for 1 particular share (let's say drives 7 and 8). Drive 7 was the landing zone for this share, and Greyhole seems to have performed the first gh copy onto drive 8 as a result (which was the drive which was has slowly been dieing). Now, it seems tha...
