       gentest - Run random generic SMB operations against two SMB servers and
       show the differences in behavior


       gentest {//server1/share1} {//server2/share2} {-U user%pass}
               {-U user%pass} [-s seed] [-o numops] [-a] [-A] [-i FILE] [-O]
               [-S FILE] [-L] [-F] [-C] [-X]


       gentest is a utility for detecting differences in behaviour between SMB
       servers. It will run a random set of generic operations against
       //server1/share1 and then the same random set against //server2/share2
       and display the differences in the responses it gets.

       This utility is used by the Samba team to find differences in behaviour
       between Samba and Windows servers.


       -U user%pass
           Specify the user and password to use when logging on on the shares.
           This parameter is mandatory and has to be specified twice.

       -s seed
           Seed the random number generator with the specified value.

       -o numops
           Set the number of operations to perform.

           Print the operations that are performed.

           Backtrack to find minimal number of operations required to make the
           response to a certain call differ.

       -i FILE
           Specify a file containing the names of fields that have to be
           ignored (such as time fields). See below for a description of the
           file format.

           Enable oplocks.

       -S FILE
           Set preset seeds file. The default is gentest_seeds.dat.

           Use preset seeds

           Fast reconnect (just close files)

           Continuous analysis mode

           Analyse even when the test succeeded.
