           samba [-i] [-M model]


           This program is part of the samba(7) suite.
           samba is the server daemon that provides filesharing and directory
           services to Windows clients. The server provides filespace and
           directory services to clients using the SMB (or CIFS) protocol and
           other related protocols such as DCE/RPC, LDAP and Kerberos.
           Clients supported include MSCLIENT 3.0 for DOS, Windows for Workgroups,
           Windows 95/98/ME, Windows NT, Windows 2000/XP/2003, OS/2, DAVE for
           Macintosh, and cifsfs for Linux.
           An extensive description of the services that the server can provide is
           given in the man page for the configuration file controlling the
           attributes of those services (see smb.conf(5). This man page will not
           describe the services, but will concentrate on the administrative
           aspects of running the server.
           Please note that there are significant security implications to running
           this server, and the smb.conf(5) manual page should be regarded as
           mandatory reading before proceeding with installation.
           As of Samba 4, there is a single daemon that incorporates the
           functionality of both smbd and nmbd that are present in older versions
           of Samba.


               If this parameter is specified it causes the server to run
               "interactively", not as a daemon, even if the server is executed on
               the command line of a shell. Setting this parameter negates the
               implicit deamon mode when run from the command line.  samba also
               logs to standard output, as if the -S parameter had been given.
           -M model
               This parameter can be used to specify the "process model" samba
               should use. This determines how concurrent clients are handled.
               Available process models include single (everything in a single
               process), standard (similar behaviour to that of Samba 3), thread
               (single process, different threads.


               or whatever initialization script your system uses).
               If running the server as a daemon at startup, this file will need
               to contain an appropriate startup sequence for the server.
           This man page is correct for version 4 of the Samba suite.


           Most diagnostics issued by the server are logged in a specified log
           file. The log file name is specified at compile time, but may be
           overridden on the command line.
           The number and nature of diagnostics available depends on the debug
           level used by the server. If you have problems, set the debug level to
           3 and peruse the log files.
           Most messages are reasonably self-explanatory. Unfortunately, at the
           time this man page was created, there are too many diagnostics
           available in the source code to warrant describing each and every
           diagnostic. At this stage your best bet is still to grep the source
           code and inspect the conditions that gave rise to the diagnostics you
           are seeing.


           hosts_access(5) smb.conf(5), smbclient(1), testparm(1), and the
           Internet RFC's rfc1001.txt, rfc1002.txt. In addition the CIFS (formerly
           SMB) specification is available as a link from the Web page


           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.
