wide links (S) This parameter controls whether or not links in the UNIX file system may be followed by the server. Links that point to areas within the directory tree exported by the server are always allowed; this parameter controls access only to areas that are outside the directory tree being exported.
Note that setting this parameter can have a negative effect on your server performance due to the extra system calls that Samba has to do in order to perform the link checks.
Default: _�w_�i_�d_�e _�l_�i_�n_�k_�s = yes
winbind cache time (G) This parameter specifies the number of seconds the w�wi�in�nb�bi�in�nd�dd�d(8) daemon will cache user and group information before querying a Windows NT server again.
This does not apply to authentication requests, these are always evaluated in real time.
Default: _�w_�i_�n_�b_�i_�n_�d _�c_�a_�c_�h_�e _�t_�i_�m_�e = 300
winbind enable local accounts (G) This parameter controls whether or not winbindd will act as a stand in replacement for the various account management hooks in smb.conf (e.g. 'add user script'). If enabled, winbindd will support the creation of local users and groups as another source of UNIX account information available via getpwnam() or get- grgid(), etc...
Default: _�w_�i_�n_�b_�i_�n_�d _�e_�n_�a_�b_�l_�e _�l_�o_�c_�a_�l _�a_�c_�c_�o_�u_�n_�t_�s = no
winbind enum groups (G) On large installations using w�wi�in�nb�bi�in�nd�dd�d(8) it may be necessary to suppress the enumeration of groups through the s�se�et�tg�gr�re�en�nt�t(�()�),g�ge�et�t-�- g�gr�re�en�nt�t(�()�) ande�en�nd�dg�gr�re�en�nt�t(�()�) group of system calls. If the _�w_�i_�n_�b_�i_�n_�d _�e_�n_�u_�m _�g_�r_�o_�u_�p_�s parameter isn�no�o, calls to the g�ge�et�tg�gr�re�en�nt�t(�()�) system call will not return any data.
Turning off group enumeration may cause some programs to behave oddly.
Default: _�w_�i_�n_�b_�i_�n_�d _�e_�n_�u_�m _�g_�r_�o_�u_�p_�s = yes
winbind enum users (G) On large installations using w�wi�in�nb�bi�in�nd�dd�d(8) it may be necessary to suppress the enumeration of users through the s�se�et�tp�pw�we�en�nt�t(�()�),g�ge�et�tp�p-�- w�we�en�nt�t(�()�) ande�en�nd�dp�pw�we�en�nt�t(�()�) group of system calls. If the _�w_�i_�n_�b_�i_�n_�d _�e_�n_�u_�m _�u_�s_�e_�r_�s parameter isn�no�o, calls to the g�ge�et�tp�pw�we�en�nt�t system call will not return any data.
Turning off user enumeration may cause some programs to behave oddly. For example, the finger program relies on having access to the full user list when searching for matching usernames.
Default: _�w_�i_�n_�b_�i_�n_�d _�e_�n_�u_�m _�u_�s_�e_�r_�s = yes
winbind nested groups (G) If set to yes, this parameter activates the support for nested groups. Nested groups are also called local groups or aliases. They work like their counterparts in Windows: Nested groups are defined locally on any machine (they are shared between DC's through their SAM) and can contain users and global groups from any trusted SAM. To be able to use nested groups, you need to run nss_winbind.
Please note that per 3.0.3 this is a new feature, so handle with care.
Default: _�w_�i_�n_�b_�i_�n_�d _�n_�e_�s_�t_�e_�d _�g_�r_�o_�u_�p_�s = no
winbind separator (G) This parameter allows an admin to define the character used when listing a username of the form of _�D_�O_�M_�A_�I_�N \_�u_�s_�e_�r. This parameter is only applicable when using the _�p_�a_�m_�__�w_�i_�n_�b_�i_�n_�d_�._�s_�o and _�n_�s_�s_�__�w_�i_�n_�- _�b_�i_�n_�d_�._�s_�o modules for UNIX services.
Please note that setting this parameter to + causes problems with group membership at least on glibc systems, as the charac- ter + is used as a special character for NIS in /etc/group.
Default: _�w_�i_�n_�b_�i_�n_�d _�s_�e_�p_�a_�r_�a_�t_�o_�r = '\'
Example: _�w_�i_�n_�b_�i_�n_�d _�s_�e_�p_�a_�r_�a_�t_�o_�r = +
winbind trusted domains only (G) This parameter is designed to allow Samba servers that are mem- bers of a Samba controlled domain to use UNIX accounts dis- tributed via NIS, rsync, or LDAP as the uid's for winbindd users in the hosts primary domain. Therefore, the user DOMAIN\user1 would be mapped to the account user1 in /etc/passwd instead of allocating a new uid for him or her.
Default: _�w_�i_�n_�b_�i_�n_�d _�t_�r_�u_�s_�t_�e_�d _�d_�o_�m_�a_�i_�n_�s _�o_�n_�l_�y = no
winbind use default domain (G) This parameter specifies whether thew�wi�in�nb�bi�in�nd�dd�d(8) daemon should operate on users without domain component in their username. Users without a domain component are treated as is part of the winbindd server's own domain. While this does not benifit Win- dows users, it makes SSH, FTP and e-mail function in a way much closer to the way they would in a native unix system.
Default: _�w_�i_�n_�b_�i_�n_�d _�u_�s_�e _�d_�e_�f_�a_�u_�l_�t _�d_�o_�m_�a_�i_�n = no
Example: _�w_�i_�n_�b_�i_�n_�d _�u_�s_�e _�d_�e_�f_�a_�u_�l_�t _�d_�o_�m_�a_�i_�n = yes
wins hook (G) When Samba is running as a WINS server this allows you to call an external program for all changes to the WINS database. The primary use for this option is to allow the dynamic update of external name resolution databases such as dynamic DNS.
The wins hook parameter specifies the name of a script or exe- cutable that will be called as follows:
w�wi�in�ns�s_�_h�ho�oo�ok�k o�op�pe�er�ra�at�ti�io�on�n n�na�am�me�e n�na�am�me�et�ty�yp�pe�e t�tt�tl�l I�IP�P_�_l�li�is�st�t
· The first argument is the operation and is one of "add", "delete", or "refresh". In most cases the operation can be ignored as the rest of the parameters provide sufficient information. Note that "refresh" may sometimes be called when the name has not previously been added, in that case it should be treated as an add.
· The second argument is the NetBIOS name. If the name is not a legal name then the wins hook is not called. Legal names con- tain only letters, digits, hyphens, underscores and periods.
· The third argument is the NetBIOS name type as a 2 digit hex- adecimal number.
· The fourth argument is the TTL (time to live) for the name in seconds.
· The fifth and subsequent arguments are the IP addresses cur- rently registered for that name. If this list is empty then the name should be deleted.
An example script that calls the BIND dynamic DNS update program n�ns�su�up�p-�- d�da�at�te�e is provided in the examples directory of the Samba source code.
wins proxy (G) This is a boolean that controls if n�nm�mb�bd�d(8) will respond to broadcast name queries on behalf of other hosts. You may need to set this to y�ye�es�s for some older clients.
Default: _�w_�i_�n_�s _�p_�r_�o_�x_�y = no
wins server (G) This specifies the IP address (or DNS name: IP address for pref- erence) of the WINS server that n�nm�mb�bd�d(8) should register with. If you have a WINS server on your network then you should set this to the WINS server's IP.
You should point this at your WINS server if you have a multi-subnetted network.
If you want to work in multiple namespaces, you can give every wins server a 'tag'. For each tag, only one (working) server will be queried for a name. The tag should be separated from the ip address by a colon.
You need to set up Samba to point to a WINS server if you have multiple subnets and wish cross-subnet browsing to work cor- rectly.
See the ???.
Default: _�w_�i_�n_�s _�s_�e_�r_�v_�e_�r =
Example: _�w_�i_�n_�s _�s_�e_�r_�v_�e_�r = mary:18.104.22.168 fred:192.168.3.199 mary:192.168.2.61 # For this example when querying a certain name, 22.214.171.124 will be asked first and if that doesn't respond 192.168.2.61. If either of those doesn't know the name 192.168.3.199 will be queried.
Example: _�w_�i_�n_�s _�s_�e_�r_�v_�e_�r = 126.96.36.199 192.168.2.61
wins support (G) This boolean controls if the n�nm�mb�bd�d(8) process in Samba will act as a WINS server. You should not set this to y�ye�es�s unless you have a multi-subnetted network and you wish a particular n�nm�mb�bd�d to be your WINS server. Note that you should N�NE�EV�VE�ER�R set this to y�ye�es�s on more than one machine in your network.
Default: _�w_�i_�n_�s _�s_�u_�p_�p_�o_�r_�t = no
workgroup (G) This controls what workgroup your server will appear to be in when queried by clients. Note that this parameter also controls the Domain name used with the s�se�ec�cu�ur�ri�it�ty�y =�= d�do�om�ma�ai�in�n setting.
Default: _�w_�o_�r_�k_�g_�r_�o_�u_�p = WORKGROUP
Example: _�w_�o_�r_�k_�g_�r_�o_�u_�p = MYGROUP
writable This parameter is a synonym for writeable.
writeable (S) Inverted synonym for _�r_�e_�a_�d _�o_�n_�l_�y.
write cache size (S) If this integer parameter is set to non-zero value, Samba will create an in-memory cache for each oplocked file (it does n�no�ot�t do this for non-oplocked files). All writes that the client does not request to be flushed directly to disk will be stored in this cache if possible. The cache is flushed onto disk when a write comes in whose offset would not fit into the cache or when the file is closed by the client. Reads for the file are also served from this cache if the data is stored within it.
This cache allows Samba to batch client writes into a more effi- cient write size for RAID disks (i.e. writes may be tuned to be the RAID stripe size) and can improve performance on systems where the disk subsystem is a bottleneck but there is free mem- ory for userspace programs.
The integer parameter specifies the size of this cache (per oplocked file) in bytes.
Default: _�w_�r_�i_�t_�e _�c_�a_�c_�h_�e _�s_�i_�z_�e = 0
Example: _�w_�r_�i_�t_�e _�c_�a_�c_�h_�e _�s_�i_�z_�e = 262144 # for a 256k cache size per file
write list (S) This is a list of users that are given read-write access to a service. If the connecting user is in this list then they will be given write access, no matter what the _�r_�e_�a_�d _�o_�n_�l_�y option is set to. The list can include group names using the @group syn- tax.
Note that if a user is in both the read list and the write list then they will be given write access.
Default: _�w_�r_�i_�t_�e _�l_�i_�s_�t =
Example: _�w_�r_�i_�t_�e _�l_�i_�s_�t = admin, root, @staff
write raw (G) This parameter controls whether or not the server will support raw write SMB's when transferring data from clients. You should never need to change this parameter.
Default: _�w_�r_�i_�t_�e _�r_�a_�w = yes
wtmp directory (G) This parameter is only available if Samba has been configured and compiled with the option -�--�-w�wi�it�th�h-�-u�ut�tm�mp�p. It specifies a direc- tory pathname that is used to store the wtmp or wtmpx files (depending on the UNIX system) that record user connections to a Samba server. The difference with the utmp directory is the fact that user info is kept after a user has logged out.
By default this is not set, meaning the system will use whatever utmp file the native system is set to use (usually_�/_�v_�a_�r_�/_�r_�u_�n_�/_�w_�t_�m_�p on Linux).
Default: _�w_�t_�m_�p _�d_�i_�r_�e_�c_�t_�o_�r_�y =
Example: _�w_�t_�m_�p _�d_�i_�r_�e_�c_�t_�o_�r_�y = /var/log/wtmp
