Description: This article explains how to map the file permission (ACLs) from the files on the master which are linked to a local user account on the master, to a local user account on the replica with the same username.
Most versions of RHA are not replicating the local users from the master to the replica, unless it is a full system or hyper-v scenario. This means you must manually create the same local users on the replica that you want to use for either a service account or to give certain rights to files we are replicating. By default when you create a file server scenario and select files for RHA to replicate it is going to replicate the file permissions (ACLs) for those files as well. However this does not mean it is automatically going to link those file permissions with the local user accounts on the replica that have the same names as the user accounts on the master.
Solution: In order to gurantee RHA links the file permissions from a local user account on the master to a local user account on the replica with the same name you must upgrade to 16.1.2 where this is a new feature. Arcserve RHA version 16.1.2 will by default make sure to map the file permissions from a local user account on the master to the local user account on the replica that has the same name. This will ensure whatever rights you setup for certain local user accounts on the master to certain files and folders will be replicated and linked to the local user accounts with the same names on the replica. Just keep in mind you must manually create those same named local user accounts on the replica manually ahead of time.
More Info: If you are not on version 16.1.2 and would like to get it you can find it here: http://downloads.arcserve.com/ARCserveRHA/r16SP2/GA/CA_RHA_r16SP2.zip
