       samba-regedit - ncurses based tool to manage the	Samba registry

       samba-regedit [--help] [--usage]	[-d <debug level>]
	[-s <configuration file>] [-l <log directory>] [-V]
	[--option=<parameter>=<value>] [--socket-options=<SOCKETOPTIONS>]

	[-C] [--pw-nt-hash]

       This tool is part of the	samba(7) suite.

       samba-regedit is	a ncurses based	tool to	manage the Samba registry. It
       can be used to show/edit	registry keys/subkeys and their	values.

	   Print a summary of command line options.

	   level is an integer from 0 to 10. The default value if this
	   parameter is	not specified is 1.

	   The higher this value, the more detail will be logged to the	log
	   files about the activities of the server. At	level 0, only critical
	   errors and serious warnings will be logged. Level 1 is a reasonable
	   level for day-to-day	running	- it generates a small amount of
	   information about operations	carried	out.

	   Levels above	1 will generate	considerable amounts of	log data, and
	   should only be used when investigating a problem. Levels above 3
	   are designed	for use	only by	developers and generate	HUGE amounts
	   of log data,	most of	which is extremely cryptic.

	   Note	that specifying	this parameter here will override the log
	   level parameter in the smb.conf file.

	   Display brief usage message.

	   Prints the program version number.

       -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.

	   Base	directory name for log/debug files. The	extension ".progname"
	   will	be appended (e.g. log.smbclient, log.smbd, etc...). The	log
	   file	is never removed by the	client.

	   Set the smb.conf(5) option "<name>" to value	"<value>" from the
	   command line. This overrides	compiled-in defaults and options read
	   from	the configuration file.

       -n|--netbiosname	<primary NetBIOS name>
	   This	option allows you to override the NetBIOS name that Samba uses
	   for itself. This is identical to setting the	netbios	name parameter
	   in the smb.conf file. However, a command line setting will take
	   precedence over settings in smb.conf.

       -i|--scope <scope>
	   This	specifies a NetBIOS scope that nmblookup will use to
	   communicate with when generating NetBIOS names. For details on the
	   use of NetBIOS scopes, see rfc1001.txt and rfc1002.txt. NetBIOS
	   scopes are very rarely used,	only set this parameter	if you are the
	   system administrator	in charge of all the NetBIOS systems you
	   communicate with.

	   Set the SMB domain of the username. This overrides the default
	   domain which	is the domain defined in smb.conf. If the domain
	   specified is	the same as the	servers	NetBIOS	name, it causes	the
	   client to log on using the servers local SAM	(as opposed to the
	   Domain SAM).

       -O|--socket-options socket options
	   TCP socket options to set on	the client socket. See the socket
	   options parameter in	the smb.conf manual page for the list of valid

	   If specified, this parameter	suppresses the normal password prompt
	   from	the client to the user.	This is	useful when accessing a
	   service that	does not require a password.

	   Unless a password is	specified on the command line or this
	   parameter is	specified, the client will request a password.

	   If a	password is specified on the command line and this option is
	   also	defined	the password on	the command line will be silently
	   ingnored and	no password will be used.

	   Try to authenticate with kerberos. Only useful in an	Active
	   Directory environment.

	   Try to use the credentials cached by	winbind.

	   This	option allows you to specify a file from which to read the
	   username and	password used in the connection. The format of the
	   file	is

	       username	= <value>
	       password	= <value>
	       domain	= <value>

	   Make	certain	that the permissions on	the file restrict access from
	   unwanted users.

	   Sets	the SMB	username or username and password.

	   If %password	is not specified, the user will	be prompted. The
	   client will first check the USER environment	variable, then the
	   LOGNAME variable and	if either exists, the string is	uppercased. If
	   these environmental variables are not found,	the username GUEST is

	   A third option is to	use a credentials file which contains the
	   plaintext of	the username and password. This	option is mainly
	   provided for	scripts	where the admin	does not wish to pass the
	   credentials on the command line or via environment variables. If
	   this	method is used,	make certain that the permissions on the file
	   restrict access from	unwanted users.	See the	-A for more details.

	   Be cautious about including passwords in scripts. Also, on many
	   systems the command line of a running process may be	seen via the
	   ps command. To be safe always allow rpcclient to prompt for a
	   password and	type it	in directly.

       -S|--signing on|off|required
	   Set the client signing state.

	   Use stored machine account password.

	   This	command	line parameter requires	the remote server support the
	   UNIX	extensions or that the SMB3 protocol has been selected.
	   Requests that the connection	be encrypted. Negotiates SMB
	   encryption using either SMB3	or POSIX extensions via	GSSAPI.	Uses
	   the given credentials for the encryption negotiation	(either
	   kerberos or NTLMv1/v2 if given domain/username/password triple.
	   Fails the connection	if encryption cannot be	negotiated.

	   The supplied	password is the	NT hash.

       This man	page is	part of	version	4.11.11	of the Samba suite.

       smbd(8),	samba(7) and net(8).

       The original Samba software and related utilities were created by
       Andrew Tridgell.	Samba is now developed by the Samba Team as an Open
       Source project similar to the way the Linux kernel is developed.

       The samba-regedit man page was written by Karolin Seeger.
