Look in to VFS for samba. Found in the samba source directory
examples/VFS. Specifically, the recycle module in examples/VFS/recycle.
You'll probly need to download the samba source as I don't know if RHL
8.0's samba RPMs come with the VFS stuff installed.
You could try, as root
# locate recycle.so
to see if you find the file recycle.so
If you don't locate it, download the samba source.
Once you compile and install the VFS stuff, just add something like:
vfs object = /usr/local/samba/recycle.so
vfs options = /etc/samba/recycle.conf
to the share in your smb.conf file, and create the requisite
recycle.conf file. There are examples that come with the samba source.
Oooh... I just looked on my home RHL 8.0 system and recycle.so exists in
/usr/lib/samba/vfs and a sample recycle.conf file exists in
So this should be fairly painless for you.
