CONTENTS

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:

\m[blue]shell_snap:check path command\m[]

o

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

o

o The command is called with a single share_path argument.

o

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

\m[blue]shell_snap:create command\m[]

o

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

o

o The command is called with a single share_path argument.

o

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

o

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

\m[blue]shell_snap:delete command\m[]

o

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

o

All commands are executed as the authenticated FSRVP client user.

This module is stackable.
