Commit a file to a WORM state through a UNIX command line

You can commit a file to a WORM state through a UNIX command line.

About this task

To commit a file to a WORM state, you must remove all write privileges from the file. If a file is already set to a read-only state, you must first add write privileges to the file, and then return the file to a read-only state.

Procedure

  2. Remove write privileges from a file by running the chmod command.
    The following command removes write privileges of /ifs/data/smartlock/file.txt:
