Synopsis

vfs objects = offline

Description

System Administration tools                                     VFS_OFFLINE(8)



NAME
       vfs_offline - Mark all files as offline

SYNOPSIS
       vfs objects = offline

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

       The vfs_offline module marks all files in the share as having the
       offline DOS attribute.

       Files with the offline DOS attribute are handled differently by the
       Windows SMB client, as well as by Windows Explorer. In particular,
       Windows Explorer does not read those files for the sole purpose of
       drawing a thumbnail, as it normally does. This can improve user
       experience with some remote file systems.

EXAMPLES
       Mark all files in a share as offline:

                   [remote]
                vfs objects = offline

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