Yes. I've heard that from others and it's right. My nmbd-centric
thinking is showing.
The next question, then, is the command line option. "-a" means "append"
mnemonically. It *appears* as though "-o" would be available for
"overwrite". Is that a viable option?
Again, the man pages currently have "-a" meaning append for nmbd, and
overwrite for smbd. I guess this is the part that really threw me.
