NAME
       smbcontrol - send messages to smbd, nmbd or winbindd processes

SYNOPSIS
       smbcontrol [-s] [-t|--timeout]

       smbcontrol [destination] [message-type] [parameter]

DESCRIPTION
       This tool is part of the samba(7) suite.

       smbcontrol is a very small program, which sends messages to a smbd(8), a nmbd(8), or a
       winbindd(8) daemon running on the system.

OPTIONS
       -?|--help
	   Print a summary of command line options.

       --usage
	   Display brief usage message.

       -s|--configfile=<configuration file>
	   The file specified contains the configuration details required by the server. The
	   information in this file includes server-specific information such as what printcap
	   file to use, as well as descriptions of all the services that the server is to
	   provide. See smb.conf for more information. The default configuration file name is
	   determined at compile time.

       -d|--debuglevel=level
	   level is an integer from 0 to 10. The default value if this parameter is not specified
	   is 1.

	   The higher this value, the more detail will be logged to the log files about the
	   activities of the server. At level 0, only critical errors and serious warnings will
	   be logged. Level 1 is a reasonable level for day-to-day running - it generates a small
	   amount of information about operations carried out.

	   Levels above 1 will generate considerable amounts of log data, and should only be used
	   when investigating a problem. Levels above 3 are designed for use only by developers
	   and generate HUGE amounts of log data, most of which is extremely cryptic.

	   Note that specifying this parameter here will override the log level parameter in the
	   smb.conf file.

       -V|--version
	   Prints the program version number.

       -s|--configfile=<configuration file>
	   The file specified contains the configuration details required by the server. The
	   information in this file includes server-specific information such as what printcap
	   file to use, as well as descriptions of all the services that the server is to
	   provide. See smb.conf for more information. The default configuration file name is
	   determined at compile time.

       -l|--log-basename=logdirectory
	   Base directory name for log/debug files. The extension ".progname" will be appended
	   (e.g. log.smbclient, log.smbd, etc...). The log file is never removed by the client.

       --option=<name>=<value>
	   Set the smb.conf(5) option "<name>" to value "<value>" from the command line. This
	   overrides compiled-in defaults and options read from the configuration file.

       -t|--timeout
	   Set timeout to seconds.

       destination
	   One of nmbd, smbd or a process ID.

	   The all destination causes the message to "broadcast" to all running daemons including
	   nmbd and winbind. This is a change for Samba 3.3, prior to this the parameter smbd
	   used to do this.

	   The smbd destination causes the message to be sent to the smbd daemon specified in the
	   smbd.pid file.

	   The nmbd destination causes the message to be sent to the nmbd daemon specified in the
	   nmbd.pid file.

	   The winbindd destination causes the message to be sent to the winbind daemon specified
	   in the winbindd.pid file.

	   If a single process ID is given, the message is sent to only that process.

       message-type
	   Type of message to send. See the section MESSAGE-TYPES for details.

       parameters
	   any parameters required for the message-type

MESSAGE-TYPES
       Available message types are:

       close-share
	   Order smbd to close the client connections to the named share. Note that this doesn't
	   affect client connections to any other shares. This message-type takes an argument of
	   the share name for which client connections will be closed, or the "*" character which
	   will close all currently open shares. This may be useful if you made changes to the
	   access controls on the share. This message can only be sent to smbd.

       debug
	   Set debug level to the value specified by the parameter. This can be sent to any of
	   the destinations. If this message is sent to either the smbd or winbindd daemons, the
	   parent process will rebroadcast the message to all child processes changing the debug
	   level in each one.

       force-election
	   This message causes the nmbd daemon to force a new browse master election.

       ping
	   Send specified number of "ping" messages and wait for the same number of reply "pong"
	   messages. This can be sent to any of the destinations.

       profile
	   Change profile settings of a daemon, based on the parameter. The parameter can be "on"
	   to turn on profile stats collection, "off" to turn off profile stats collection,
	   "count" to enable only collection of count stats (time stats are disabled), and
	   "flush" to zero the current profile stats. This can be sent to any smbd or nmbd
	   destinations.

       debuglevel
	   Request debuglevel of a certain daemon and write it to stdout. This can be sent to any
	   of the destinations.

       profilelevel
	   Request profilelevel of a certain daemon and write it to stdout. This can be sent to
	   any smbd or nmbd destinations.

       printnotify
	   Order smbd to send a printer notify message to any Windows NT clients connected to a
	   printer. This message-type takes the following arguments:

	   queuepause printername
	       Send a queue pause change notify message to the printer specified.

	   queueresume printername
	       Send a queue resume change notify message for the printer specified.

	   jobpause printername unixjobid
	       Send a job pause change notify message for the printer and unix jobid specified.

	   jobresume printername unixjobid
	       Send a job resume change notify message for the printer and unix jobid specified.

	   jobdelete printername unixjobid
	       Send a job delete change notify message for the printer and unix jobid specified.

	   Note that this message only sends notification that an event has occurred. It doesn't
	   actually cause the event to happen.

	   This message can only be sent to smbd.

       dmalloc-mark
	   Set a mark for dmalloc. Can be sent to both smbd and nmbd. Only available if samba is
	   built with dmalloc support.

       dmalloc-log-changed
	   Dump the pointers that have changed since the mark set by dmalloc-mark. Can be sent to
	   both smbd and nmbd. Only available if samba is built with dmalloc support.

       shutdown
	   Shut down specified daemon. Can be sent to both smbd and nmbd.

       pool-usage
	   Print a human-readable description of all talloc(pool) memory usage by the specified
	   daemon/process. Available for both smbd and nmbd.

       drvupgrade
	   Force clients of printers using specified driver to update their local version of the
	   driver. Can only be sent to smbd.

       reload-config
	   Force daemon to reload smb.conf configuration file. Can be sent to smbd, nmbd, or
	   winbindd.

       reload-printers
	   Force smbd to reload printers. Can only be sent to smbd.

       idmap
	   Notify about changes of id mapping. Can be sent to smbd or (not implemented yet)
	   winbindd.

	   flush [uid|gid]
	       Flush caches for sid <-> gid and/or sid <-> uid mapping.

	   delete <ID>
	       Remove a mapping from cache. The mapping is given by <ID> which may either be a
	       sid: S-x-..., a gid: "GID number" or a uid: "UID number".

	   kill <ID>
	       Remove a mapping from cache. Terminate smbd if the id is currently in use.

AUTHOR
       The original Samba software and related utilities were created by Andrew Tridgell. Samba
       is now developed by the Samba Team as an Open Source project similar to the way the Linux
       kernel is developed.

       The original Samba man pages were written by Karl Auer. The man page sources were
       converted to YODL format (another excellent piece of Open Source software, available at
       ftp://ftp.icce.rug.nl/pub/unix/) and updated for the Samba 2.0 release by Jeremy Allison.
       The conversion to DocBook for Samba 2.2 was done by Gerald Carter. The conversion to
       DocBook XML 4.2 for Samba 3.0 was done by Alexander Bokovoy.
