SAM-QFS: Worm Emul_lite: Worm Trigger Not Set Through Samba

(Doc ID 1923220.1)

Last updated on SEPTEMBER 23, 2016

Applies to:

Sun QFS and Storage Archive Manager (SAM) - Version 5.3 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Attempting to configure Worm emul_lite feature.  This feature works as it should, if we use "chmod -w" locally.

However, we want to use this in a Samba Share. If we set the file write-protected through Samba, the Worm trigger is not set.


 We change the permissions on windows similar like we do on solaris for a file in a directory that has the WORM capacities.  Meaning, the file is put as read only and all wx permissions are removed.
