smbtree — A text based smb network browser
smbtree [-b] [-D] [-S]
This tool is part of the samba(7) suite.
smbtree is a smb browser program
in text mode. It is similar to the "Network Neighborhood" found
on Windows computers. It prints a tree with all
the known domains, the servers in those domains and
the shares on the servers.
Query network nodes by sending requests as broadcasts instead of querying the local master browser.
Only print a list of all the domains known on broadcast or by the master browser
Only print a list of all the domains and servers responding on broadcast or known by the master browser.
level is an integer
from 0 to 10. The default value if this parameter is
not specified is 0.
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
Prints the program version number.
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
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.
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.
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 used.
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
ps command. To be safe always allow
rpcclient to prompt for a password and type
it in directly.
Print a summary of command line options.
