Red Hat Linux 7.1 Samba Config File

From a Red Hat 7.1 Samba Server. Location: /etc/samba/smb.conf.

The text in blue represents the parts from Webmin which were edited. Of course, anything in this file is fair game, to be edited within VI / VIM, or any editor.

A functioning Red Hat 8.0 Samba Config file


# This is the main Samba configuration file. You should read the
# smb.conf(5) manual page in order to understand the options listed
# here. Samba has a huge number of configurable options (perhaps too
# many!) most of which are not shown in this example
#
# Any line which starts with a ; (semi-colon) or a # (hash)
# is a comment and is ignored. In this example we will use a #
# for commentry and a ; for parts of the config file that you
# may wish to enable
#
# NOTE: Whenever you modify this file you should run the command “testparm”
# to check that you have not many any basic syntactic errors.

# as many users as required.
