Does shutdown command broadcast warning to samba users?


If I do a
shutdown -r 03:15 &
will this only broadcast the shutdown warning messages to people logged into the server directly, or will this also warn users who are connected to samba shares on this server?

It can only broadcast to local users.

There is no certain connection to remote file access users, and no message transmission facility for that.

Of course, anyone logged in through ssh will recieve the notification. So it's not only local users in the strict sense.

Yes and no.

samba at one time could send messages to windows (winpopup) and linux (linpopup) applications. winpopup was removed with NT. There are replacements that are supposed to be compatible with netbuei but do not know if they work with samba.
