Discussion Split servers - playback cuts out on secondary server when Sonarr/Radarr upgrades the file

Remote - Dedicated Server
Hey everyone

I run two servers:

- A primary server running PGBlitz- that handles all the downloading, post processing, and uploading to GDrive via TCrypt
- A secondary server that has the TCrypt mounted, GCrypt (for some older files) and MergerFS joining the two. Plex then streams from the MergerFS location

Now the issue I'm having is this:

When the primary server upgrades an existing file (Sonarr/Radarr finds a better version), if I'm streaming that file on the secondary server, playback cuts out almost immediately.

Obviously the rclone mount on the secondary server is mirroring the delete/rename action made by the primary server - but its killing the Plex playback mid stream.

Does anyone else have this issue?

My understanding was that RClone wouldn't mirror the delete/rename action on the secondary server if the file was open and streaming?
