       vfs_readonly - make a Samba share read only for a specified time period


       vfs objects = readonly


       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 their actual access privileges.

       This module is stackable.


       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).


       Mark all shares read only:

                vfs objects = readonly

       Mark the [backup] share as read only during business hours:

                path = /readonly
                vfs objects = readonly
                readonly:period = readonly:period = "today 9:00","today 17:00"


       This man page is part of version 4.10.7-Ubuntu 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.
