vfs_acl_tdb - Save NTFS-ACLs in a tdb file
vfs objects =
This VFS module is part of the samba
The vfs_acl_tdb VFS module stores NTFS Access Control Lists (ACLs) in a tdb
file. This enables the full mapping of Windows ACLs on Samba servers.
The ACL settings are stored in $LOCKDIR/file_ntacls.tdb.
This module forces the following parameters:
•inherit acls = true
•dos filemode = true
•force unknown acl user = true
This module is stackable.
acl_tdb:ignore system acls = [yes|no]
When set to yes
, a best effort mapping
from/to the POSIX ACL layer will not
be done by this module. The
default is no
, which means that Samba keeps setting and evaluating both
the system ACLs and the NT ACLs. This is better if you need your system ACLs
be set for local or NFS file access, too. If you only access the data via
Samba you might set this to yes to achieve better NT ACL compatibility.
If acl_tdb:ignore system acls
is set to yes
, the following
additional settings will be enforced:
•create mask = 0666
•directory mask = 0777
•map archive = no
•map hidden = no
•map readonly = no
•map system = no
•store dos attributes = yes
acl_tdb:default acl style = [posix|windows]
This parameter determines the type of ACL that
is synthesized in case a file or directory lacks an security.NTACL
When set to posix
, an ACL will be synthesized based on the POSIX mode
permissions for user, group and others, with an additional ACE for NT
will full rights.
When set to windows
, an ACL is synthesized the same way Windows does it,
only including permissions for the owner and NT Authority\SYSTEM
The default for this option is posix
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.
