vfstest - tool for testing samba VFS modules
vfstest [-d debuglevel] [-c command] [-l logdir] [-h]
This tool is part of the samba(7) suite.
vfstest is a small command line utility that has the ability to test dso samba VFS
modules. It gives the user the ability to call the various VFS functions manually and
supports cascaded VFS modules.
Execute the specified (colon-separated) commands. See below for the commands that are

File name for log/debug files. The extension '.client' will be appended. The log file

level is an integer from 0 to 10. The default value if this parameter is not specified
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
Prints the program version number.
-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.
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.

This man page is correct for version 3.0 of the Samba suite.
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 vfstest man page was written by Jelmer Vernooij.

Samba(7) delivers the set of four SMF(5) services as can be seen from the following
$ svcs samba wins winbind swat

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:
runs the smbd daemon managing the CIFS sessions
runs the nmbd daemon enabling the browsing (WINS)
runs the winbindd daemon making the domain idmap
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
