Appendix B. Samba Configuration Option Quick Reference

The first section of this appendix lists each option that can be used in a Samba configuration file, which is usually named smb.conf. Most configuration files contain a global section of options that apply to all services (shares) and a separate section for various individual shares. If an option applies only to the global section, [global] appears to the right of its name in the following reference section.

Except where noted, when specifying elements of a list, the elements can be separated by spaces, tabs, commas, semicolons, escaped newlines, or escaped carriage returns.

Following this reference section is a glossary of value types, and a list of variables Samba recognizes.
