About the book:

Samba Pocket Reference is aimed at combating the frequently neglected details associated with Samba set-up configuration, and it does it superbly. Since Samba is most often a fire-and-forget solution for getting computers running Linux and UNIX to speak Microsoft Windows Server Message Block (SMB) protocol, it's easy for administrators to do exactly that: forget the details of Samba configuration after setting it up. Though Samba Pocket Reference probably won't tell you what ails your Samba installation or how to adjust it so that it does what you want, this tiny guide (it will literally fit into your pocket) will remind you of the Samba commands and configuration file options available to you and the details of each one's syntax.

One might say that Pocket Reference books like this one are Nutshell books boiled down to even greater density. Absent are all introductory information, all explanatory material and almost all of the explicit references between related subjects. The authors assume that readers know what they're looking for (for example, the allowable values for the character set entry in the smb.conf file) and need only to be given the facts. You can learn about Samba from this book, but you'll find it most useful as a refresher and printed substitute for the main pages. --David Wall

Topics covered: Configuration file settings and commands associated with Samba 2.0.x and 2.2.x, presented in extremely concise reference format. Coverage goes to all legal smb.conf values, the smbd and nmbd daemons, and the utilities that ship with Samba.
