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.
