vfs_expand_msdfs - Man Page

Expand msdfs links depending on client IP


vfs objects = expand_msdfs


This VFS module is part of the samba(7) suite.

With this module, the link target is not directly a server and share, but this module expects the target to reference a file, containing a table. The file is referenced by means of the msdfs symlink target according to msdfs:@table-filename@/share. The file table-filename is supposed to contain a list of destinations that are looked at from top to bottom:

192.168.234 local.samba.org
192.168 remote.samba.org

With this, clients from network 192.168.234/24 are redirected to host local.samba.org, clients from 192.168/16 are redirected to remote.samba.org and all other clients go to default.samba.org.


This man page is part of version 4.20.0 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.
