Description SATOH Fumiyasu 2004-02-18 01:55:00 UTC
Samba client commands (smbclient, smbcacls, nmblookup and so on) have
-l / --log-basename (but --logfile in manpages) option to redirect
debug messages to logfile. But this option does not affect a client.

$ smbclient -L server -U% -d10 -lsmbclient.log
*** many many debug messages here ***
$ ls -l smbclient.log*
ls: smbclient.log*: No such file or directory

Fix for smbclient checked into 3.0 cvs.
Also updated the docs to clarify that -l 
defines the log base directory.  Not the 
logfile itself.

$ smbclient -L server -N -d10 -l/tmp
$ ls -l /tmp/log.smbclient

sorry for the same, cleaning up the database to prevent unecessary reopens of bugs.
