The Samba-Bugzilla – Bug 1753
nmbd and winbindd daemons disregard "-l" (log directory) option
Last modified: 2005-08-24 10:15:58 UTC
When trying to change the directory that log files should be written to, using
the "-l" option to nmbd and winbindd, the daemon disregards the option and still
logs to the compiled-in default directory.
This is due to a bug that overrides the option with the default after first
setting the option.
Created attachment 649 [details]
Patch to nmbd and winbindd to fix the bug.
The attached patch fixes the problem, since POPT_COMMON_SAMBA already takes
care of setting the default for this option.
