What is File Blocking?
File blocking features allows you to restrict specific file types from appearing on a file server or share by specifying the blocked file extensions.
Files (File Services)
The Nutanix Files feature allows users to leverage the Nutanix platform as a highly available file server. This allows for a single namespace where users can store home directories and files.
Files applies the file blocking policy to all levels of a share or export, where the ability to create the specified file type is then disabled. An attempt to create files with a blocked extension results in an error.
After enabling file blocking, Files does not permit the following operations:
- Creating a file with the blocked extension.
- Renaming an existing file to a file with the blocked extension.
- Duplicating a file with a blocked extension.
- Moving a file with a blocked extension.
