Samba's Trivial Database files and how to troubleshoot them
Sean A. Walberg (sean@ertw.com), Senior Network Engineer

Summary: Samba uses Trivial Database files to store both persistent and temporary data as part of its job integrating file and print sharing between Linux and Windows. In preparation for the Linux Professional Institute Certification exam LPI-302, learn all about the Samba Trivial Database (TDB) format that Samba uses to store information, how to look inside TDB files, and how to back them up.

In this article, learn about these concepts:
Backing up Samba Trivial Database (TDB) files
Restoring TDB files
Identifying TDB file corruption
Editing/listing TDB file content
This article helps you prepare for Objective 310.3 in Topic 310 of the LPI's Mixed Environment specialty exam (302). The objective has a weight of 1.
To get the most from the articles in this series, you should have an advanced knowledge of Linux and a working Linux system on which you can practice the commands covered in this article. In particular, this article assumes that you have a working knowledge of Linux command-line functions and at least a general understanding of the purpose of Samba as covered in "Learn Linux, 302 (Mixed environments): Concepts". To perform the actions described in this article, you must have the Samba software installed. Some actions require that you have a working Server Message Block (SMB)/Common Internet File System (CIFS) network at your disposal.
