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 ther 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 correct for version 3.0.25 of the Samba suite. AUTHOR
The original Samba software and related utilities were created by Andrew Tridgell. Samba is now developed by the Samba Team as an Open Source project similar to the way the Linux kernel is developed. VFS_READONLY(8)

vfs_syncops - Ensure meta data operations are performed synchronously. SYNOPSIS
vfs objects = syncops DESCRIPTION
This VFS module is part of the samba(7) suite. Some filesystems (even some journaled filesystems) require that a fsync() be performed on many meta data operations to ensure that the operation is guaranteed to remain in the filesystem after a power failure. This is particularly important for some cluster filesystems which are participating in a node failover system with clustered Samba. On those filesystems the vfs_syncops VFS module provides a way to perform those operations safely. This module is stackable. CONFIGURATION
Most of the performance loss with the vfs_syncops VFS module is in fsync on close(). You can disable that with syncops:onclose = no that can be set either globally or per share. On certain filesystems that only require the last data written to be fsync()'ed, you can disable the metadata synchronization of this module with syncops:onmeta = no. This option can be set either globally or per share. The vfs_syncops VFS module can also be disabled completely for a share with syncops:disable = true. EXAMPLES
Add syncops functionality for [share]: [share] path = /data/share vfs objects = syncops syncops:onclose = no VERSION
