SMBCONTROL(1)									    SMBCONTROL(1)

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

SYNOPSIS
       smbcontrol [ -d <debug level> ]	[ -s <smb config file> ]  -i

       smbcontrol  [  -d  <debug  level>  ]  [ -s <smb config file> ]  destination message-type [
       parameter ]

DESCRIPTION
       This tool is part of the  Samba suite.

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

OPTIONS
       -d <debuglevel>
	      debuglevel is an integer from 0 to 10.

       -s <smb.conf>
	      This parameter specifies the pathname to the Samba configuration file,  smb.conf(5)
	      This file controls all aspects of the Samba setup on the machine.

       -i     Run interactively. Individual commands of the form destination message-type parame-
	      ters 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
	      One of: close-share, debug,  force-election,  ping  ,  profile,	debuglevel,  pro-
	      filelevel, or printer-notify.

	      The  close-share	message-type  sends  a	message to smbd which will then close the
	      client connections to the named share. Note that this doesn't affect client connec-
	      tions  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.

	      The debug message-type allows the debug level to be set to the value  specified  by
	      the parameter. This can be sent to any of the destinations.

	      The force-election message-type can only be sent to the nmbd destination. This mes-
	      sage causes the nmbd daemon to force a new browse master election.

	      The ping message-type sends the number of "ping" messages specified by the  parame-
	      ter and waits for the same number of reply "pong" messages. This can be sent to any
	      of the destinations.

	      The profile message-type sends a message to an smbd to change the profile  settings
	      based  on the parameter. The parameter can be "on" to turn on profile stats collec-
	      tion, "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.

	      The debuglevel message-type sends a "request  debug  level"  message.  The  current
	      debug  level setting is returned by a "debuglevel" message. This can be sent to any
	      of the destinations.

	      The profilelevel message-type sends a "request profile level" message. The  current
	      profile  level setting is returned by a "profilelevel" message. This can be sent to
	      any smbd or nmbd destinations.

	      The printer-notify message-type sends a message to  smbd	which  in  turn  sends	a
	      printer  notify message to any Windows NT clients connected to a printer. This mes-
	      sage-type takes an argument of the printer name to send notify messages  to.   This
	      message can only be sent to smbd.

       parameters
	      any parameters required for the message-type

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 con-
       verted to YODL format (another excellent piece  of  Open  Source  software,  available  at
       ftp://ftp.icce.rug.nl/pub/unix/ <URL: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
