3        in text mode. It is similar to the "Network Neighborhood" found
4        on Windows computers. It prints a tree with all
5        the known domains, the servers in those domains and
6        the shares on the servers.

25logged to the log files about the activities of the
26server. At level 0, only critical errors and serious
27warnings will be logged. Level 1 is a reasonable level for
28day-to-day running - it generates a small amount of
29information about operations carried out.</p><p>Levels above 1 will generate considerable
30amounts of log data, and should only be used when
31investigating a problem. Levels above 3 are designed for
32use only by developers and generate HUGE amounts of log
33data, most of which is extremely cryptic.</p><p>Note that specifying this parameter here will

56string is uppercased. If these environmental variables are not
57found, the username <code class="constant">GUEST</code> is used. </p><p>A third option is to use a credentials file which
58contains the plaintext of the username and password.  This
59option is mainly provided for scripts where the admin does not
60wish to pass the credentials on the command line or via environment
61variables. If this method is used, make certain that the permissions
62on the file restrict access from unwanted users.  See the
63<em class="parameter"><code>-A</code></em> for more details. </p><p>Be cautious about including passwords in scripts. Also, on
64many systems the command line of a running process may be seen
65via the <span><strong class="command">ps</strong></span> command.  To be safe always allow
