config backend

This controls the backend for storing the configuration. Possible values are file (the default) and registry. When registry is encountered while loading smb.conf, the configuration read so far is dropped and the global options are read from registry instead. So this triggers a registry only configuration. Share definitions are not read immediately but instead registry shares is set to yes. Note: This option can not be set inside the registry configuration itself.

Example: registry

Supported on: At least Microsoft Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 family
