Description

System Administration tools                                        VFS_WORM(8)



NAME
       vfs_worm - disallows writes for older file

SYNOPSIS
       vfs objects = worm

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

       The vfs_worm module controls the writability of files and folders
       depending on their change time and a adjustable grace period.

       If the change time of a file or directory is older than the specified
       grace period, the write access will be denied, independent of further
       access controls (e.g. by the filesystem).

       In the case that the grace period is not exceed, the worm module will
       not impact any access controls.

OPTIONS
       worm:grace_period = SECONDS
           Period in seconds which defines the time how long the write access
           should be handled by the normal access controls. After this grace
           period the file or directory becomes read only.

EXAMPLES
       Deny the write access to files and folders, which are older than five
       minutes (300 seconds):

                [wormshare]
                vfs objects = worm
                worm:grace_period = 300
