Samba HowTo Guide
Prev Home Next


This file contains a list of tests you can perform to validate your Samba server. It also tells you what the likely cause of the problem is if it fails any one of these steps. If it passes all these tests, then it is probably working fine.

You should do all the tests in the order shown. We have tried to carefully choose them so later tests only use capabilities verified in the earlier tests. However, do not stop at the first error: there have been some instances when continuing with the tests has helped to solve a problem.

If you send one of the Samba mailing lists an email saying, “It does not work,” and you have not followed this test procedure, you should not be surprised if your email is ignored.
