Synopsis

Description

System Administration tools                                    VFS_READONLY(8)



NAME
       vfs_readonly - make a Samba share read only for a specified time period

SYNOPSIS
       vfs objects = readonly

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

       The vfs_readonly VFS module marks a share as read only for all clients
       connecting within the configured time period. Clients connecting during
       this time will be denied write access to all files in the share,
       irrespective of their actual access privileges.

       This module is stackable.

OPTIONS
       readonly:period = BEGIN, END
           Only mark the share as read only if the client connection was made
           between the times marked by the BEGIN and END date specifiers. The
           syntax of these date specifiers is the same as that accepted by the
           -d option of GNU date(1).

EXAMPLES
       Mark all shares read only:

                   [global]
                vfs objects = readonly

       Mark the [backup] share as read only during business hours:

                   [backup]
                path = /readonly
                vfs objects = readonly
                readonly:period = readonly:period = "today 9:00","today 17:00"

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

AUTHOR

       Source project similar to the way the Linux kernel is developed.
