ea support

      ea support (S)
             This  boolean  parameter  controls  whether  s�sm�mb�bd�d(8)  will allow
             clients to attempt to store OS/2 style Extended attributes on  a
             share. In order to enable this parameter the underlying filesys-
             tem exported by the share must support extended attributes (such
             as  provided  on  XFS and EXT3 on Linux, with the correct kernel
             patches). On Linux the filesystem must have  been  mounted  with
             the  mount option user_xattr in order for extended attributes to
             work, also extended attributes must be compiled into  the  Linux
             Default: _�e_�a _�s_�u_�p_�p_�o_�r_�t = no

enable rid algorithm

      enable rid algorithm (G)
             This  option is used to control whether or not smbd in Samba 3.0
             should fallback to the algorithm used by Samba 2.2  to  generate
             user  and group RIDs. The longterm development goal is to remove
             the algorithmic mappings of RIDs altogether, but this has proved
             to  be  difficult.  This  parameter  is  mainly provided so that
             developers can turn the  algorithm  on  and  off  and  see  what
             breaks.  This parameter should not be disabled by non-developers
             because certain features in Samba will fail to work without  it.
             Default: _�e_�n_�a_�b_�l_�e _�r_�i_�d _�a_�l_�g_�o_�r_�i_�t_�h_�m = yes

encrypt passwords

      encrypt passwords (G)
             This  boolean controls whether encrypted passwords will be nego-
             tiated with the client. Note that Windows NT 4.0 SP3  and  above
             and  also  Windows 98 will by default expect encrypted passwords
             unless a registry entry is changed. To use  encrypted  passwords
             in Samba see the chapter "User Database" in the Samba HOWTO Col-
             MS Windows clients that expect Microsoft encrypted passwords and
             that  do  not  have  plain text password support enabled will be
             able to connect only to a Samba server that has  encypted  pass-
             word  support  enabled  and  for  which the user accounts have a
             valid encrypted password. Refer to  the  smbpasswd  command  man
             page  for  information regarding the creation of encrypted pass-
             words for user accounts.
             The use of plain text passwords is NOT advised  as  support  for
             this  feature is no longer maintained in Microsoft Windows prod-
             ucts. If you want to use plain text passwords you must set  this
             parameter to no.
             In  order for encrypted passwords to work correctly s�sm�mb�bd�d(8) must
             either have access to a local s�sm�mb�bp�pa�as�ss�sw�wd�d(5) file  (see  the  s�sm�mb�b-�-
             p�pa�as�ss�sw�wd�d(8)  program for information on how to set up and maintain
             this file), or set the security = [server|domain|ads]  parameter
             which causes s�sm�mb�bd�d to authenticate against another server.
             Default: _�e_�n_�c_�r_�y_�p_�t _�p_�a_�s_�s_�w_�o_�r_�d_�s = yes

enhanced browsing

      enhanced browsing (G)
             This  option  enables  a  couple of enhancements to cross-subnet
             browse propagation that have been added in Samba but  which  are
             not standard in Microsoft implementations.
             The  first enhancement to browse propagation consists of a regu-
             lar wildcard query to a Samba WINS server for all Domain  Master
             Browsers,  followed by a browse synchronization with each of the
             returned DMBs. The second enhancement consists of a regular ran-
             domised browse synchronization with all currently known DMBs.
             You  may  wish to disable this option if you have a problem with
             empty workgroups not disappearing from browse lists. Due to  the
             restrictions  of  the  browse  protocols  these enhancements can
             cause a empty workgroup to stay  around  forever  which  can  be
             In  general  you  should  leave  this option enabled as it makes
             cross-subnet browse propagation much more reliable.
             Default: _�e_�n_�h_�a_�n_�c_�e_�d _�b_�r_�o_�w_�s_�i_�n_�g = yes

enumports command

      enumports command (G)
             The concept of a "port" is fairly foreign to UNIX  hosts.  Under
             Windows  NT/2000 print servers, a port is associated with a port
             monitor and generally takes the  form  of  a  local  port  (i.e.
             LPT1:,  COM1:,  FILE:)  or a remote port (i.e. LPD Port Monitor,
             etc...). By default, Samba has  only  one  port  defined--"�"S�Sa�am�mb�ba�a
             P�Pr�ri�in�nt�te�er�r  P�Po�or�rt�t"�".  Under Windows NT/2000, all printers must have a
             valid port name. If you wish to have a list of  ports  displayed
             (s�sm�mb�bd�d   does  not  use  a port name for anything) other than the
             default "�"S�Sa�am�mb�ba�a P�Pr�ri�in�nt�te�er�r P�Po�or�rt�t"�", you can define  _�e_�n_�u_�m_�p_�o_�r_�t_�s  _�c_�o_�m_�m_�a_�n_�d
             to point to a program which should generate a list of ports, one
             per line, to standard output. This listing will then be used  in
             response to the level 1 and 2 EnumPorts() RPC.
             Default: _�e_�n_�u_�m_�p_�o_�r_�t_�s _�c_�o_�m_�m_�a_�n_�d =
             Example: _�e_�n_�u_�m_�p_�o_�r_�t_�s _�c_�o_�m_�m_�a_�n_�d = /usr/bin/listports
