vfs_shell_snap ā€” Shell script callouts for snapshot creation and deletion


vfs objects = shell_snap


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

shell_snap:create command

shell_snap:delete command

All commands are executed as the authenticated FSRVP client user.

This module is stackable.


		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:

		rpc_daemon:fssd = fork
		registry shares = yes
		include = registry


This man page is part of version 4.10.4 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.
