This parameter indicates whether a share is valid and thus can
be used. When this parameter is set to false, the share will be
in no way visible nor accessible.
This option should not be used by regular users but might be of
help to developers. Samba uses this option internally to mark
shares as deleted.
Default: _�-_�v_�a_�l_�i_�d = yes
valid users (S)
This is a list of users that should be allowed to login to this
service. Names starting with '@', '+' and '&' are interpreted
using the same rules as described in the _�i_�n_�v_�a_�l_�i_�d _�u_�s_�e_�r_�s parame-
If this is empty (the default) then any user can login. If a
username is in both this list and the _�i_�n_�v_�a_�l_�i_�d _�u_�s_�e_�r_�s list then
access is denied for that user.
The current servicename is substituted for _�%_�S . This is useful
in the [homes] section.
Default: _�v_�a_�l_�i_�d _�u_�s_�e_�r_�s = # No valid users list (anyone can login)
Example: _�v_�a_�l_�i_�d _�u_�s_�e_�r_�s = greg, @pcusers
veto files (S)
This is a list of files and directories that are neither visible
nor accessible. Each entry in the list must be separated by a
'/', which allows spaces to be included in the entry. '*' and
'?' can be used to specify multiple files or directories as in
Each entry must be a unix path, not a DOS path and must n�no�ot�t
include the unix directory separator '/'.
Note that the _�c_�a_�s_�e _�s_�e_�n_�s_�i_�t_�i_�v_�e option is applicable in vetoing
One feature of the veto files parameter that it is important to
be aware of is Samba's behaviour when trying to delete a direc-
tory. If a directory that is to be deleted contains nothing but
veto files this deletion will f�fa�ai�il�l unless you also set the
_�d_�e_�l_�e_�t_�e _�v_�e_�t_�o _�f_�i_�l_�e_�s parameter to_�y_�e_�s.
Setting this parameter will affect the performance of Samba, as
it will be forced to check all files and directories for a match
as they are scanned.
Default: _�v_�e_�t_�o _�f_�i_�l_�e_�s = # No files or directories are vetoed.
Example: _�v_�e_�t_�o _�f_�i_�l_�e_�s = ; Veto any files containing the word Secu-
rity, ; any ending in .tmp, and any directory containing the ;
word root. veto files = /*Security*/*.tmp/*root*/ ; Veto the
Apple specific files that a NetAtalk server ; creates. veto
files = /.AppleDouble/.bin/.AppleDesktop/Network Trash Folder/
veto oplock files
veto oplock files (S)
This parameter is only valid when the _�o_�p_�l_�o_�c_�k_�s parameter is
turned on for a share. It allows the Samba administrator to
selectively turn off the granting of oplocks on selected files
that match a wildcarded list, similar to the wildcarded list
used in the_�v_�e_�t_�o _�f_�i_�l_�e_�s parameter.
You might want to do this on files that you know will be heavily
contended for by clients. A good example of this is in the Net-
Bench SMB benchmark program, which causes heavy client con-
tention for files ending in _�._�S_�E_�M. To cause Samba not to grant
oplocks on these files you would use the line (either in the
[global] section or in the section for the particular NetBench
Default: _�v_�e_�t_�o _�o_�p_�l_�o_�c_�k _�f_�i_�l_�e_�s = # No files are vetoed for oplock
Example: _�v_�e_�t_�o _�o_�p_�l_�o_�c_�k _�f_�i_�l_�e_�s = /.*SEM/
This parameter is a synonym for vfs objects.
vfs objects (S)
This parameter specifies the backend names which are used for
Samba VFS I/O operations. By default, normal disk I/O operations
are used but these can be overloaded with one or more VFS
Default: _�v_�f_�s _�o_�b_�j_�e_�c_�t_�s =
Example: _�v_�f_�s _�o_�b_�j_�e_�c_�t_�s = extd_audit recycle
This allows you to override the volume label returned for a
share. Useful for CDROMs with installation programs that insist
on a particular volume label.
Default: _�v_�o_�l_�u_�m_�e = # the name of the share
