Description Björn Jacke 2003-06-30 09:33:44 UTC
samba 2.x used to log like this:
  ps-gurari ( connect to service c$ as user nobody (uid=65534, 
gid=65533) (pid 1766)

samba3 doesn't log the netbios names: ( closed connection to service c$

the netbios name does not appear anywhere.

%m seems also to have problems when used in preexec ...
Comment 2 Gerald (Jerry) Carter 2003-06-30 22:10:46 UTC
without full log files, my guess is that these 
are Windows 2k or above clients connecting to
port 445 (smbd in Samba 3.0 supports port 139(netbios)
and port 445(no netbios)) so there is no name to be
logged.  Is this your case?

You can set "smb ports = 139" in smb.conf to force 
netbios only connections.
Comment 3 Björn Jacke 2003-07-02 01:08:13 UTC
yes, sorry, you are right I think. Maybe it would be a good idea to mention 
this in the howto for migrations from samba2 to samba3.
