NAME

       vfs_shell_snap - Shell script callouts for snapshot creation and deletion

SYNOPSIS

       vfs objects = shell_snap

DESCRIPTION

       This VFS module is part of the samba(8) suite.

       The vfs_shell_snap VFS provides shell-script callouts for snapshot creation and deletion
       operations issued by remote clients using the File Server Remote VSS Protocol (FSRVP).

       The following shell callouts may be configured in smb.conf:

       shell_snap:check path command

              ·   Called when an FSRVP client wishes to check whether a given share supports
                  snapshot create/delete requests.

              ·   The command is called with a single share_path argument.

              ·   The command must return 0 if share_path is capable of being snapshotted.

       shell_snap:create command

              ·   Called when an FSRVP client wishes to create a snapshot.

              ·   The command is called with a single share_path argument.

              ·   The command must return 0 status if the snapshot was successfully taken.

              ·   The command must output the path of the newly created snapshot to stdout.

       shell_snap:delete command

              ·   Called when an FSRVP client wishes to delete a snapshot.

              ·   The command is called with base_share_path and snapshot_share_path arguments.

              ·   The command must return 0 status if the snapshot was successfully removed.

       All commands are executed as the authenticated FSRVP client user.

       This module is stackable.

CONFIGURATION

                     [share]
                     vfs objects = shell_snap
                     shell_snap:check path command = snap_check_path.sh
                     shell_snap:create command = snap_create.sh
                     shell_snap:delete command = snap_delete.sh

       Samba's FSRVP server must be configured in the [global] section:

                     [global]
                     rpc_daemon:fssd = fork
                     registry shares = yes
                     include = registry
