       tdbbackup  -  tool  for	backing up and for validating the integrity of
       samba .tdb files

       tdbbackup [-s suffix] [-v] [-h]

       This tool is part of the samba(1) suite.

       tdbbackup is a tool that may be used to backup samba .tdb  files.  This
       tool  may  also be used to verify the integrity of the .tdb files prior
       to samba startup or during normal operation. If it  finds  file	damage
       and it finds a prior backup the backup file will be restored.

       -h     Get help information.

       -s suffix
	      The -s option allows the adminisistrator to specify a file back‐
	      up extension. This way it is possible to keep a history  of  tdb
	      backup files by using a new suffix for each backup.

       -v     The  -v will check the database for damages (currupt data) which
	      if detected causes the backup to be restored.


       The tdbbackup utility can safely be run at any time. It was designed so
       that it can be used at any time to validate the integrity of tdb files,
       even during Samba operation. Typical usage for the command will be:

       tdbbackup [-s suffix] *.tdb

       Before restarting samba the following command may be  run  to  validate
       .tdb files:

       tdbbackup -v [-s suffix] *.tdb

       Samba .tdb files are stored in various locations, be sure to run backup
       all .tdb file on the system. Important files includes:

       ·  secrets.tdb - usual location is in the /usr/local/samba/private  di‐
	  rectory, or on some systems in /etc/samba.

       ·  passdb.tdb  -	 usual location is in the /usr/local/samba/private di‐
	  rectory, or on some systems in /etc/samba.

       ·  *.tdb located in the /usr/local/samba/var directory or on some  sys‐
	  tems in the /var/cache or /var/lib/samba directories.

       This man page is correct for version 3.0 of the Samba suite.

       The  original  Samba software and related utilities were created by An‐
       drew Tridgell. Samba is now developed by the  Samba  Team  as  an  Open
       Source project similar to the way the Linux kernel is developed.

       The tdbbackup man page was written by John H Terpstra.
