Dear all

i'm following the wiki at this page http://wiki2.dovecot.org/Replication but
i'm getting this errors:

#doveadm -v sync tcp:dst_hostname
#doveadm(root): Fatal: Failed to start dsync-server command: 75

If i look at the dst dovecot.log file i get:

Sep 16 12:42:18 auth: Error: passdb(root,xx): Auth client doesn't have
permissions to do a PASS lookup: /var/run/dovecot/auth-userdb mode=0666,
but not owned by UID 1002(vmail)
Sep 16 12:42:18 doveadm(xx,root): Error: user root: Auth PASS lookup failed
Sep 16 12:42:18 doveadm(xx,root): Debug: auth input:
Sep 16 12:42:18 doveadm(xx,root): Error: dsync-server:
/var/run/dovecot/auth-userdb: passdb lookup failed (to see if user is
proxied, because doveadm_proxy_port is set)

I've also tried to perform a

#chown vmail /var/run/dovecot/auth-userdb

But the error is the same.

If i do the
#doveadm user *

I get a list of users loaded from the database i've added these line to my

iterate_query = SELECT username from mailbox where active=1

Any idea?
