NAME

       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 their 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"
