vfs_readonly — make a Samba share read only for a specified time period
vfs objects = readonly
This VFS module is part of the samba(7) suite.
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.
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).
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"
