If we had a FCSvr install in one city running on an XSAN Local Network, and another Install running on an XSAN Local Network in another city, but both connected as part of a WAN, has anyone had experience trying to "Sync" the 2 Instances?

For instance, declaring one the "Master", and updating any duplicate entries in the other city, similar to DNS replication....

    So there isn't any built in syncing Final Cut Server in a master slave configuration. But if you have a fat pipe WAN site you could possible have an automation that copy 1 asset from you (Master) FCSvr to the slave system, then use the command line tools to ssh in to the (Slave) FCSvr and create the asset and pass it's metadata and such.

    Also, you could configure them to "talk" with XML files. Another thought is to write a script that takes the backup of the one database and pumps it into the other database. It all depends on what you are trying to accomplish.

    Another way i've looked into doing this is through synchronizing the actual databases periodically and transfer any new files found during the sync. This way there is no need for any translations to XML or CSV and back.
