Start Compliance Clock
Starts the compliance clock. This option is available only in SmartLock compliance mode and only if the compliance clock has not been started yet.

Setting the compliance clock configures the clock to the same time as the cluster system clock. Before you set the compliance clock, ensure that the system clock is set to the correct time. If the compliance clock later becomes unsynchronized with the system clock, the compliance clock will slowly correct itself to match the system clock. The compliance clock corrects itself at a rate of approximately one week per year.

Create Domain
Creates a SmartLock directory.
Type
Specifies the type of SmartLock directory.
Enterprise
Enterprise directories enable you to protect your data without restricting your cluster to comply with regulations defined by U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission rule 17a-4. If you commit a file to a WORM state in an enterprise directory, the file can never be modified and cannot be deleted until the retention period passes. However, if you are logged in through the root user account, you can delete the file before the retention period passes through the privileged delete feature. The privileged delete feature is not available for compliance directories. Enterprise directories reference the system clock to facilitate time-dependent operations, including file retention.
Compliance
Compliance directories enable you to protect your data in compliance with the regulations defined by U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission rule 17a-4. If you commit a file to a WORM state in a compliance directory, the file cannot be modified or deleted before the specified retention period has expired. You cannot delete committed files, even if you are logged in to the compliance administrator account. Compliance directories reference the compliance clock to facilitate time-dependent operations, including file retention.
Path
Specifies the path of the directory.
Apply a default retention span
Specifies the default retention period for the directory. If a user does not specify a date to release a file from a WORM state, the default retention period is assigned.
Enforce a minimum retention time span
Specifies the minimum retention period for the directory. Files are retained in a WORM state for at least the specified amount of time, even if a user specifies an expiration date that results in a shorter retention period.
Enforce a maximum retention time span
Specifies the maximum retention period for the directory. Files cannot be retained in a WORM state for more than the specified amount of time, even if a user specifies an expiration date that results in a longer retention period.
Automatically commit files after a specific period of time
The autocommit time period for the directory. After a file exists in this SmartLock directory without being modified for the specified time period, the file is automatically committed to a WORM state.
Override retention periods and protect all files until a specific date
The override retention date for the directory. Files committed to a WORM state are not released from a WORM state until after the specified date, regardless of the maximum retention period for the directory or whether a user specifies an earlier date to release a file from a WORM state.
