Name

Synopsis

vfs objects = netatalk

Description

System Administration tools                                    VFS_NETATALK(8)



NAME
       vfs_netatalk - hide .AppleDouble files from CIFS clients

SYNOPSIS
       vfs objects = netatalk

DESCRIPTION
       This VFS module is part of the samba(7) suite.

       The vfs_netatalk VFS module dynamically hides .AppleDouble files,
       preventing spurious errors on some CIFS clients. .AppleDouble files may
       be created by historic implementations of AFP (Apple Filing Protocol)
       on servers.

       This module is stackable.

EXAMPLES
       Hide .AppleDouble files on the [data] share:

                   [data]
                vfs objects = netatalk

CAVEATS
       This module is largely historic and unlikely to be of use in modern
       networks since current Apple systems are able to mount CIFS shares
       natively.

VERSION
       This man page is part of version 4.9.3 of the Samba suite.

AUTHOR
