NAME

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

CONTENTS

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.

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.
