I've a requirement that someone might have some tips on. I have a file
server with users from various remote locations sharing the files. I
want to migrate the data to a new server on a new site, however, i will
not be able to migrate all the users from the old one to the new one at
the same time.
So my question is, does anyone know of a tool that can keep the files on
both locations in sync, even though the same files may be edited
simultaneously on both ends. Ideally, i only want the file changes
replicated (not the whole file each time) and in (near) real time.
There are lots of tools that can sync two locations, but i don't know
any that will deal with save conflicts if both files (remote and local)
was edited, and i don't want to loose either files changes.
This is probably the holy grail of replication, and doesn't yet exist,
but any tips welcome. Is rsync capable of this? I don't mind if it is
GPL or commercial, Linux or Windows. Something that has a trail version
would be useful, as i probably only need it for a couple of weeks while
we migrate all users.
Any advice/tips welcome.
