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

SYNOPSIS
       smbcontrol [-i] [-s]

       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(1M), a nmbd(1M), or a
       winbindd(1M) daemon running on the system.

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

       -s <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.

       -i
	   Run interactively. Individual commands of the form destination message-type parameters
	   can be entered on STDIN. An empty command line or a "q" will quit the program.

       destination
	   One of nmbd, smbd or a process ID.

	   The smbd destination causes the message to "broadcast" to all smbd daemons.

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

       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 occured. It doesn't
	   actually cause the event to happen.

	   This message can only be sent to smbd.

       samsync
	   Order smbd to synchronise sam database from PDC (being BDC). Can only be sent to smbd.

	   Note
	   Not working at the moment

       samrepl
	   Send sam replication message, with specified serial. Can only be sent to smbd. Should
	   not be used manually.

       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.

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.

NOTES
       Source for Samba is available on http://opensolaris.org.

       Samba(7) delivers the set of four SMF(5) services as can be seen from the following
       example:

	    $ svcs samba wins winbind swat
	   STATE	  STIME    FMRI
	   disabled	  Apr_21   svc:/network/samba:default
	   disabled	  Apr_21   svc:/network/winbind:default
	   disabled	  Apr_21   svc:/network/wins:default
	   disabled	  Apr_21   svc:/network/swat:default

       where the services are:

	"samba"
	   runs the smbd daemon managing the CIFS sessions

	"wins"
	   runs the nmbd daemon enabling the browsing (WINS)

	"winbind"
	   runs the winbindd daemon making the domain idmap

	"swat"
	   Samba Web Administration Tool is a service providing access to browser-based Samba
	   administration interface and on-line documentation.	The service runs on software
	   loopback network interface on port 901/tcp, i.e. opening "http://localhost:901/" in
	   browser will access the SWAT service on local machine.

       Please note: SWAT uses HTTP Basic Authentication scheme where user name and passwords are
       sent over the network in clear text. In the SWAT case the user name is root. Transferring
       such sensitive data is advisable only on the software loopback network interface or over
       secure networks.
