I am planning to use inosync to sync data from master server to several client servers. I have created a user called rsyncuser in both master and slaves with access permissions and passwordless ssh access from master to slave servers.
Inosync is working when I use it from the command line as rsyncuser.
Next I want this to start automatically when server is turned on. I figured upstart is the way to get this working.
I am unable to find the right upstart command to get this working.
Here is my upstart conf file. The problem seems to be around running "inosync -d -c /etc/inosync/inosync_rsyncuser.py" as a given user.
As you can see I have tried a number of various options!
