NAME

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

SYNOPSIS

       net  {<ads|rap|rpc>} [-h] [-wworkgroup] [-Wmyworkgroup] [-Uuser] [-Iip-
        address]  [-pport]  [-nmyname]  [-sconffile]  [-Sserver]   [-l]   [-P]
        [-ddebuglevel] [-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]]    [createupn=UPN]
       [createcomputer=OU] [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.

       [UPN]  (ADS  only) set the principalname attribute during the join. The
       default format is host/netbiosname@REALM.

       [OU] (ADS only) Precreate the computer account in a specific OU. The OU
       string  reads  from  top  to bottom without RDNs, and is delimited by a
       ’/’. Please note that ’´ is used for escape by both the shell and ldap,
       so  it  may need to be doubled or quadrupled to pass through, and it is
       not used as a delimiter.

   [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
       manager first.

   USERSHARE
       Starting  with  version 3.0.23, a Samba server now supports the ability
       for non-root users to add user-defined shares to be exported using  the
       "net usershare" commands.

       Members  of  the UNIX group "sambashare" can create user-defined shares
       on demand using the commands below.

       The usershare commands are:

          net usershare add sharename path [comment] [acl] [guest_ok=[y|n]]  -
          to add or change a user defined share.

          net usershare delete sharename - to delete a user defined share.

          net  usershare info [-l|--long] [wildcard sharename] - to print info
          about a user defined share.

          net usershare list [-l|--long] [wildcard sharename] - to  list  user
          defined shares.

   USERSHARE ADD sharename path [comment] [acl] [guest_ok=[y|n]]
       Add or replace a new user defined share, with name "sharename".

       "path"  specifies  the  absolute pathname on the system to be exported.
       Restrictions may be put on this, see the global smb.conf  parameters  :
       "usershare  owner  only", "usershare prefix allow list", and "usershare
       prefix deny list".

       The optional "comment" parameter is the comment that will appear on the
       share when browsed to by a client.

       The  optional  "acl"  field  specifies  which users have read and write
       access to the entire share. Note that guest connections are not allowed
       unless  the  smb.conf  parameter "usershare allow guests" has been set.
       The definition of a user defined  share  acl  is  :  "user:permission",
       where user is a valid username on the system and permission can be "F",
       "R", or "D". "F" stands for "full  permissions",  ie.  read  and  write
       permissions.  "D"  stands  for "deny" for a user, ie. prevent this user
       from accessing this share. "R" stands for "read only", ie.  only  allow
       read  access  to this share (no creation of new files or directories or
       writing to files).

       The default if no "acl" is  given  is  "Everyone:R",  which  means  any
       authenticated user has read-only access.

       The  optional  "guest_ok"  has  the same effect as the parameter of the
       same name in smb.conf, in that it allows  guest  access  to  this  user
       defined  share.  This parameter is only allowed if the global parameter
       "usershare allow guests" has been set to true in the smb.conf.

       There is no separate command to modify an existing user defined  share,
       just  use  the  "net  usershare add [sharename]" command using the same
       sharename as the one you wish to modify and specify the new options you
       wish. The Samba smbd daemon notices user defined share modifications at
       connect time so will see the change immediately, there is  no  need  to
       restart smbd on adding, deleting or changing a user defined share.

   USERSHARE DELETE sharename
       Deletes  the  user  defined  share  by  name.  The  Samba  smbd  daemon
       immediately notices this change, although it will  not  disconnect  any
       users currently connected to the deleted share.

   USERSHARE INFO [-l|--long] [wildcard sharename]
       Get  info on user defined shares owned by the current user matching the
       given pattern, or all users.

       net usershare info on its own dumps out info on the user defined shares
       that were created by the current user, or restricts them to share names
       that match  the  given  wildcard  pattern  (’*’  matches  one  or  more
       characters,  ’?’  matches  only one character). If the ’-l’ or ’--long’
       option is also given, it prints out info on user defined shares created
       by other users.

       The   information   given   about   a   share  looks  like  :  [foobar]
       path=/home/jeremy  comment=testme  usershare_acl=Everyone:F  guest_ok=n
       And  is  a  list of the current settings of the user defined share that
       can be modified by the "net usershare add" command.

   USERSHARE LIST [-l|--long] wildcard sharename
       List all the user defined shares owned by the current user matching the
       given pattern, or all users.

       net  usershare  list  on its own list out the names of the user defined
       shares that were created by the current user, or restricts the list  to
       share  names  that match the given wildcard pattern (’*’ matches one or
       more characters, ’?’ matches  only  one  character).  If  the  ’-l’  or
       ’--long’  option  is  also given, it includes the names of user defined
       shares created by other users.
