vfs_shell_snap ā€” 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

shell_snap:create command

shell_snap:delete command

All commands are executed as the authenticated FSRVP client user.

This module is stackable.
