NAME
vfs_shadow_copy - Make a Samba share read only for a specified time period SYNOPSIS
vfs objects = shadow_copy DESCRIPTION
This VFS module is part of the samba(7) suite. The vfs_shadow_copy VFS module functionality that is similar to Microsoft Shadow Copy services. When setup properly, this module allows Microsoft Shadow Copy clients to browse "shadow copies" on Samba shares. This module is stackable. CONFIGURATION
vfs_shadow_copy relies on a filesystem snapshot implementation. Many common filesystems have native support for this. Filesystem snapshots must be mounted on specially named directories in order to be recognized by vfs_shadow_copy. The snapshot mount points must be immediate children of a the directory being shared. The snapshot naming convention is @GMT-YYYY.MM.DD-hh.mm.ss, where: o YYYY is the 4 digit year o MM is the 2 digit month o DD is the 2 digit day o hh is the 2 digit hour o mm is the 2 digit minute o ss is the 2 digit second. The vfs_shadow_copy snapshot naming convention can be produced with the following date(1) command: TZ=GMT date +@GMT-%Y.%m.%d-%H.%M.%S EXAMPLES
Add shadow copy support to user home directories: [homes] vfs objects = shadow_copy CAVEATS
This is not a backup, archival, or version control solution. With Samba or Windows servers, vfs_shadow_copy is designed to be an end-user tool only. It does not replace or enhance your backup and archival solutions and should in no way be considered as such. Additionally, if you need version control, implement a version control system. VERSION

NAME
vfs_crossrename - server side rename files across filesystem boundaries SYNOPSIS
vfs objects = crossrename DESCRIPTION
This VFS module is part of the samba(7) suite. The vfs_crossrename VFS module allows server side rename operations even if source and target are on different physical devices. A "move" in Explorer is usually a rename operation if it is inside of a single share or device. Usually such a rename operation returns NT_STATUS_NOT_SAME_DEVICE and the client has to move the file by manual copy and delete operations. If the rename by copy is done by the server this can be much more efficient. vfs_crossrename tries to do this server-side cross-device rename operation. There are however limitations that this module currently does not solve: The ACLs of files are not preserved, meta data in EAs are not preserved, renames of whole subdirectories cannot be done recursively, in that case we still return STATUS_NOT_SAME_DEVICE and let the client decide what to do, rename operations of huge files can cause hangs on the client because clients expect a rename operation to return fast. This module is stackable. OPTIONS
crossrename:sizelimit = BYTES server-side cross-device-renames are only done for files if the filesize is not larger than the defined size in MiB to prevent timeouts. The default sizelimit is 20 (MiB) EXAMPLES
To add server-side cross-device renames inside of a share for all files sized up to 50MB: [testshare] path = /data/mounts vfs objects = crossrename crossrename:sizelimit = 50 VERSION
