The SambaServer agent starts, stops, and monitors the smbd process as a daemon. Only one resource of this type is permitted. You can use the agent to make a smbd daemon highly available.
The smbd daemon provides Samba share services. The agent verifies that Samba is running by reading the pid of smbd daemon. The agent can perform in-depth monitoring by establishing a socket connection to Samba at ports where the daemon is listening and sending it a NetBIOS session request.
