NAME

masktest - Find differences in wildcard matching between Sambas implementation and that of a remote server.

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS

masktest {//server/share} [-U user%pass] [-d debuglevel] [-W workgroup] [-n numloops] [-s seed] [-a] [-E] [-M max protocol] [-f filechars] [-m maskchars] [-v]

DESCRIPTION

masktest is a utility for detecting differences in behaviour between Sambas own implementation and that of a remote server. It will run generate random filenames/masks and check if these match the same files they do on the remote file as they do on the local server. It will display any differences it finds.

This utility is used by the Samba team to find differences in behaviour between Samba and Windows servers.

-s seed

-n numops

Set the number of operations to perform.

-a

Print the operations that are performed.

-M max_protocol

Maximum protocol to use.

-f

Specify characters that can be used when generating file names. Default: abcdefghijklm.

-E

-m maskchars

Specify characters used for wildcards.
