@myzamri Hello again.
The replication feature has been proven working on our v4 “Built on openSUSE” and it was one of the earliest features we ensured worked in our move from the prior and now legacy CentOS variant (the v3*).
The docs are the missing bit, so it can be tricky to get going. You have top configure both the source and target machines via the spanner in services page and add each machines appliance ID to the other. They must also not be the same appliance ID. That will not work. Then the service has to be enabled on each machine with the respective send or receive.
The you will get, after 5 completed replication events, a stable state. As stated we need the docs done really. But the system we use ends up with 3 snapshots on each machine. Main issue is robustness as if a single replication event is disturbed one needs to manually intervene. There is also no resume capability for an in-progress btrfs send/receive which is the technology we ‘wrap’ for our replication.
The only docs we have currently on this setup are as follows:
And we have some long outstanding doc issues to address this.
Also note that replication is know to be broken in our last CentOS testing channel, but was fixed later on in the CentOS stable channel. However I last proved it working here in the openSUSE testing channel with the indicated and issued caveat of robustness.
Any detailed reports of failure in v4 are of course welcome, given a correctly configured setup. Again the docs are the weakness here, at least initially. I have a technical wiki entry almost done that I need to work on some time that will help other developers contribute but as always there are resource constraints in such a large project.
Hope that helps and if you end up persevering and prevailing on this one do consider contributing the required user documentation update:

The docs have been getting much better of late and replication has unfortunately not received the attention it deserves.
Hope that helps.
