I've tried following this but to no avail. I think maybe I've
misunderstood something about how to run Dirvish so can I ask whether
this is correct (based on 'dirvish for Debian' by Paul Slootman):
backup machine ('server'):
1) set up a master.conf
2) set up a /snapshot/client-name/dirvish/default.conf for each
3) run 'sudo dirvish --vault client-name --init'
0) do nothing
But when I run (3), even following Ben's instructions, it still asks for
root password on client-name:
michael at ratty:/etc/dirvish$ sudo dirvish --vault ironlung --init
root at ironlung.phy.umist.ac.uk's password:
I'm guessing that I should also be setting up a 'dirvish' user on both
the server and each/every client (!), changing permissions, running (3)
