VFS for Samba - Linux Setup, Configuration & Administration

I am currently attempting to create a recycling bin for Samba on my redhat 8 machine using the recycle module (VFS). I am not exactly sure how to do this. The recycle.so file exists in my /usr/lib/samba/vfs , but do I have to create a recycle.conf file? Does anyone have any weblinks with help configuring VFS? Also, I am not exactly sure what to edit/add in the smb.conf file. Any advice, or a walkthrough would be GREATLY APPRECIATED! Thanks so much in advance. Brad...

    Yes.

    I used the help file that was included with the source. CLooks like RH
    8.0 keeps some relevant docs in /usr/share/doc/samba-2.2.7/

    Within the share section, add references to vfs object, and vfs options
    so that vfs object = <path/to>/recycle.so and vfs options =
    <path/to>recycle.conf

    Oh, and you can only use one VFS feature per share.
