NAME

       gentest - Run random generic SMB operations against two SMB servers and show the
       differences in behavior

SYNOPSIS

       gentest {//server1/share1} {//server2/share2} {-U user%pass} {-U user%pass} [-s seed]
               [-o numops] [-a] [-A] [-i FILE] [-O] [-S FILE] [-L] [-F] [-C] [-X]

DESCRIPTION

       gentest is a utility for detecting differences in behaviour between SMB servers. It will
       run a random set of generic operations against //server1/share1 and then the same random
       set against //server2/share2 and display the differences in the responses it gets.

       This utility is used by the Samba team to find differences in behaviour between Samba and
       Windows servers.

OPTIONS

       -U user%pass
           Specify the user and password to use when logging on on the shares. This parameter is
           mandatory and has to be specified twice.

       -s seed
           Seed the random number generator with the specified value.

       -o numops
           Set the number of operations to perform.

       -a
           Print the operations that are performed.

       -A
           Backtrack to find minimal number of operations required to make the response to a
           certain call differ.

       -i FILE
           Specify a file containing the names of fields that have to be ignored (such as time
           fields). See below for a description of the file format.

       -O
           Enable oplocks.

       -S FILE
           Set preset seeds file. The default is gentest_seeds.dat.

       -L
           Use preset seeds

       -F
           Fast reconnect (just close files)

       -C
           Continuous analysis mode

       -X
           Analyse even when the test succeeded.
