Line 1: Line 1:
Samba stores its data in TDB files.  TDB stands for "Tiny database" and was first introduced in Samba 3.0 as a way to store information quickly and effectively.
 
  
TDB files normally are stored in 2 locations:
 
/var/lock
 
(your private directory where you smbpasswd is stored).
 
 
They sometimes break and the only way to fix them is to stop samba, move them into a suspect folder, and restart samba.  Samba will recreate the files.  There are 2 tools available but they only let you see what is inside the database or back the database up.
