vfs_worm - disallows writes for older file
vfs objects =
This VFS module is part of the samba
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.
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.
Deny the write access to files and folders, which are older than five minutes
vfs objects = worm
worm:grace_period = 300
This man page is correct for version 4.2 of the Samba suite.
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.
