NAME
       vfs_unityed_media - Allow multiple Avid clients to share a network
       drive.

SYNOPSIS
       vfs objects = unityed_media

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

       Unityed Media is related with Media Harmony VFS, the main difference
       between Unityed Media and Media Harmony is that Unityed Media doesn't
       need manual refreshing of media directories. Unityed Media handles your
       media files in a similar way to the way Unity, ISIS, EditShare or
       another dedicated solution does. Without client-side application and on
       hardware of your choice.

       This module is stackable.

CONFIGURATION
       If Mac and Windows Avid clients will be accessing the same folder, they
       should be given separate share definitions, with hidden Mac files
       vetoed on the Windows share. See EXAMPLES.

OPTIONS
       unityed_media:clientid = user | hostname | ip
           Controls what client related identifier is appended to user
           specific paths:

                  o   user (default) - use the username.

                  o   hostname - use the hostname. Note this will not work
                      with OS X clients as these always send a generic string
                      ("workstation") to the server..

                  o   ip - use the client's IP address. NOTE: this is untested
                      and may not work at all.


EXAMPLES
       Enable unityed_media for Mac and Windows clients:

                   [avid_mac]
                path = /avid
                vfs objects = unityed_media
                   [avid_win]
                path = /avid
                vfs objects = unityed_media
                veto files = /.DS_Store/._@/.Trash@/.Spotlight@/.hidden/.hotfiles@/.vol/
                delete veto files = yes
