doveadm-replicator - Manage users' mail replicaton


doveadm [-Dv] [-f formatter] replicator command [OPTIONS] [ARGUMENTS]


The doveadm replicator COMMANDS can be used to manage the automated replication of users'


Global doveadm(1) options:

-D Enables verbosity and debug messages.

-f formatter
Specifies the formatter for formatting the output. Supported formatters are:

flow prints each line with key=value pairs.

pager prints each key: value pair on its own line and separates records with form
feed character (^L).

tab prints a table header followed by tab separated value lines.

table prints a table header followed by adjusted value lines.

-o setting=value
Overrides the configuration setting from /etc/dovecot/dovecot.conf and from the
userdb with the given value. In order to override multiple settings, the -o option
may be specified multiple times.

-v Enables verbosity, including progress counter.

This command uses by default the output formatter flow (without the key= prefix).

Command specific options:

-a replicator_socket_path
This option is used to specify an absolute path to an alternative UNIX domain

By default doveadm(1) will use the socket /var/run/dovecot/replicator-doveadm. The
socket may be located in another directory, when the default base_dir setting was
overridden in /etc/dovecot/dovecot.conf.


Specifies for which users the command should be executed. In most cases you would
like to use patterns which contains wildcards, e.g. \*@example.net for all users of
the example.net domain, or simply \* for all users.

When the SQL userdb module is used make sure that the iterate_query setting in
/etc/dovecot/dovecot-sql.conf.ext matches your database layout. When using the
LDAP userdb module, make sure that the iterate_attrs and iterate_filter settings in
/etc/dovecot/dovecot-ldap.conf.ext match your LDAP schema. Otherwise doveadm(1)
will be unable to iterate over all users.


replicator add
doveadm replicator add [-a replicator_socket_path] user_mask

Add the specified user(s) to the replicator. If the user_mask contains "?" or "*"
wildcards, the list of usernames is looked up from the userdb.

replicator dsync-status
doveadm replicator dsync-status [-a replicator_socket_path]

Show the status for the currently running dsync processes.

replicator remove
doveadm replicator remove [-a replicator_socket_path] username

Remove the specified user from replicator.

replicator replicate
doveadm replicator replicate [-a replicator_socket_path] [-f] [-p priority] user_mask

Start replication for the specified users now. If the -f parameter is given, full
replication is done for the user. You can also specify the priority, which can be either
high or low. If the user mask contains "?" or "*" wildcards, the list of usernames is
looked up from the users that currently exist in replicator (not from the userdb).

replicator status
doveadm replicator status [-a replicator_socket_path] user_mask

Show the replication status for users.
