Strange. Could you post your profile (if it's not too big)? I'm (ab) 
using the "include" functionality a lot, and I have never had a  
problem with it.

Ignoring differences in props

Hi

When syncing with unison I get a lot of differences because of file
props which don't match. Although unison proposes the right thing
(skipping), is there a way to tell it to ignore these completely and
not even display them?

Thanks for any help

Potential use for Unison

Hi folks - someone mentioned Unison in a Slashdot post and it may be
what I am looking for, so can you confirm it would work in the
scenario below and answer a few questions - I have been through the
Web site and have read all the docs but would appreciate some more
insight:

I am looking to allow around 30+ home workers with Windows-based PCs
and laptops to 'backup' via broadband to three Linux servers spread
around our regional offices. If I install Unison on their PCs and also
on the Linux servers, will the users be able to do a 'one click'
backup operation at the end of the day?

Could the Linux servers be set to 'pull' a scheduled backup down to them 

How will/does Unison cope with multiple, simulteneous operations - ie:
several users backing up to the same server at the same time?

Does Unison use any form of data compression across the wire?

Up until now I was looking at Bacula, but the setup of Unison seems
much simpler - if things look promising I may start a pilot scheme
next week!

Many Thanks

Nigel Kendrick

Unison 2.13.16 slow after time change

Hi All...

After the change of the clocks and the silly way that Micrososft (XP/2000 
machines in this case) handles it, the first update after the time change is 
always slow. But with 2.13.16 it stayed slow (fastcheck is on) after the 
change.

I deleted the archive files on both ends and resynchronized to fix it for 
now.

There was a similar problem back around May and Jerome posted a patch.

Thanks,

...Karl

One click is possible if there are no file version conflicts.

Yes. Look into the -server option, and into how Unison is often set up 
for Windows via a plink-running batch file. You need to do the reverse. 
Consider that this requires that you know the hostnames of the client 
machines. Alternatively, you can schedule back-ups using Windows 
Scheduled Tasks.

Don't know.

> Does Unison use any form of data compression across the wire?

It does use the rsync protocol when it doesn't need to pull down an 
entire file, and you can force further compression by using a compressed 
  ssh connection.

Good luck, and please report on how well this experiment went for you.

Backing up to the same server at the same time is not a problem, as long
as each user is modifying a different part of the file hierarchy (ie,
everyone is just using their own home directory on the server).

If you want to use unison as lightweight CVS (ie, everyone modifies the
same file tree), then you may run into two issues:

- if two users have updated the same file, you'll get a conflict
- user A may see user B's unison temp files

I have been using unison as a lightweight CVS. Users access the files via a
samba share which is configured to hide both temporary unison files and
unison backups. The only problem that occurs from time to time is a conflict
when more than one user tries to modify the same file at the same time. This
usually occurs due to the lag of transferring lock files or file permissions
between synchronized file sets.
