Re: rysnc /etc/passwd files



Look around this:

http://www.cis.upenn.edu/~bcpierce/unison/index.html

a colleague tests it to replicate files (a partition with data, no /etc or 
other core files, but it worth the try) between a Debian and an openBSD, 
it works great.

Re: rysnc /etc/passwd files






I'm not sure why you'd want to do this when there are so many good,
free LDAP servers out there.  If you really need user information to
be consistent across many machines, you need to be looking at a
network-aware user information store.  If you're new to LDAP, OpenLDAP
is a good place to start; if you've used LDAP before, or are up for a
challenge, you might look at Fedora DS.  Either one is far superior to
rsyncing passwd files.
