Subject:   Mirroring samba file server.
Message-ID:  <>

I have a network with 8 remote sites. 7 of the 8 can use the main
samba file server without much issue with latency. I have one location
where the latency is really high. I was thinking of adding a 2nd samba
server in that location and mirroring the 1st one. Has anyone done a
setup similar to this? What should I use to sync the 2 servers? Both
servers will be running FreeBSD 10.2 on ZFS. Would zfs send/receive
work on live data or would rsync be better?

thanks for your help,
