NAME

       net - Tool for administration of Samba and remote CIFS servers.

SYNOPSIS

       net {<ads|rap|rpc>} [-h] [-w workgroup] [-W myworkgroup] [-U user]
           [-I ip-address] [-p port] [-n myname] [-s conffile] [-S server]
           [-l] [-P] [-d debuglevel] [-V]

DESCRIPTION

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

       The  samba  net  utility  is  meant  to  work just like the net utility
       available for windows and DOS. The first argument  should  be  used  to
       specify  the  protocol  to use when executing a certain command. ADS is
       used for ActiveDirectory, RAP is using for old (Win9x/NT3) clients  and
       RPC  can be used for NT4 and Windows 2000. If this argument is omitted,
       net will try to  determine  it  automatically.  Not  all  commands  are
       available on all protocols.

OPTIONS

       -h|--help
              Print a summary of command line options.

       -w target-workgroup
              Sets target workgroup or domain. You have to specify either this
              option or the IP address or the name of a server.

       -W workgroup
              Sets client workgroup or domain

       -U user
              User name to use

       -I ip-address
              IP address of target server to use. You have to  specify  either
              this option or a target workgroup or a target server.

       -p port
              Port  on  the  target server to connect to (usually 139 or 445).
              Defaults to trying 445 first, then 139.

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

       -s <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.

       -S server
              Name of target server. You should specify either this option  or
              a target workgroup or a target IP address.

       -l     When listing data, give more information on each item.

       -P     Make queries to the external server using the machine account of
              the local server.

       -d|--debuglevel=level
              level is an integer from 0 to 10.  The  default  value  if  this
              parameter is not specified is zero.

              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
              parameter in the smb.conf file.

COMMANDS

   CHANGESECRETPW
       This  command  allows the Samba machine account password to be set from
       an external application to a machine account password that has  already
       been  stored  in  Active  Directory. DO NOT USE this command unless you
       know exactly what you are doing. The use of this command requires  that
       the  force  flag  (-f)  be  used also. There will be NO command prompt.
       Whatever information is piped into  stdin,  either  by  typing  at  the
       command  line  or  otherwise,  will  be  stored  as the literal machine
       password. Do NOT use  this  without  care  and  attention  as  it  will
       overwrite  a legitimate machine password without warning. YOU HAVE BEEN
       WARNED.

   TIME
       The NET TIME command allows you to view the time on a remote server  or
       synchronise  the  time  on the local server with the time on the remote
       server.

   TIME
       Without any options, the NET TIME command  displays  the  time  on  the
       remote server.

   TIME SYSTEM
       Displays the time on the remote server in a format ready for /bin/date

   TIME SET
       Tries  to  set  the  date  and  time of the local server to that on the
       remote server using /bin/date.

   TIME ZONE
       Displays the timezone in hours from GMT on the remote computer.

   [RPC|ADS] JOIN [TYPE] [-U username[%password]] [options]
       Join a domain. If the account already exists on the server, and  [TYPE]
       is  MEMBER,  the  machine will attempt to join automatically. (Assuming
       that the machine has been  created  in  server  manager)  Otherwise,  a
       password will be prompted for, and a new account may be created.

       [TYPE]  may be PDC, BDC or MEMBER to specify the type of server joining
       the domain.

   [RPC] OLDJOIN [options]
       Join a domain. Use the OLDJOIN option to join the domain using the  old
       style  of domain joining - you need to create a trust account in server

       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 net manpage was written by Jelmer Vernooij.
