I have 2 X Truenas12 U5,1 boxes with existing and identical data on 1 SMB share.
The sync was done through software filesync from another intermediate server from SMB to SMB. The setup is very clear like below:
Truenas A → Pool A → Dataset A → SMB A
Truenas B → Pool B → Dataset B → SMB B
Now that intermediate server is gone, and i’m asking what is possible now to do, use Rsync module & task or ZFS Replication? (i don’t count syncthing because of issues).
Considering that data is written differently on the 2 ZFS filesystems, so the snapshots are different, and taking into account that zfs replication is based on existing snapshots, will it be ok to start ZFS replication on those 2 datasets ? Or is better maybe to start clear, or stick to RSync ? Thanks for any suggestions.
