    Some commands that are good to know:
    Output the state of replication:
    doveadm replicator status
    Show all users that are replicated with their status:
    doveadm replicator status '*'
    Do a manual sync:
    doveadm -D sync -A -d
    Initiate the replication of one mailbox manually:
    doveadm -D sync -u [email protected] -d
    If your system is not syncing, make sure:
    - The correct settings (noted in the perfect multiserver guide) for Dovecot are placed in /etc/dovecot/conf.d/99-ispconfig-custom-config.conf and in /usr/local/ispconfig/server/conf-custom/install/dovecot_custom.conf.master.
    - The servers can reach each other

    When using SSH for replication:
    - Both servers have each others public key in ~/.ssh/authorized_keys

    When using TCPS for replication:
    - Both servers have a valid SSL certificate for the hostname.
    - The doveadm_password (set in the earlier mentioned config file) is the same on both servers.
    - The doveadm_port is opened in the firewall of both servers (but only for traffic from each other - don't open this port publicly).

    You can find errors regarding the synchronization in the mail logs (mail.log, mail.warn, mail.err). When there are errors, you can usually find more context here.
