0021501: Provide a more streamlined configuration backup
Migrated from: https://tracker.clearos.com/view.php?id=21501
Reported by: PBaldwin
The /var/lib/samba directory contains state and configuration data for Samba. These are included in a configuration backup, but the files can start to get too large.
- Which files are required for a restore?
- Are pruning tools available and/or required?
We don't know what we don't know, so any other Samba tips would be appreciated.

Unfortunately we do not distribute the samba_backup script ....
