    Command:

    smbcontrol

    
    
    

    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(8),
           a nmbd(8), or a winbindd(8) daemon running on the system.
    
    
    

    OPTIONS

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

                   jobid specified.
    
               jobresume printername unixjobid
