The Samba-Bugzilla – Bug 196
netbios name not logged in log.smbd
Last modified: 2005-02-07 08:38:49 UTC
samba 2.x used to log like this:
ps-gurari (126.96.36.199) connect to service c$ as user nobody (uid=65534,
gid=65533) (pid 1766)
samba3 doesn't log the netbios names:
188.8.131.52 (184.108.40.206) closed connection to service c$
the netbios name does not appear anywhere.
%m seems also to have problems when used in preexec ...
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.
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.
originally reported against 3.0.0beta1. CLeaning out
non-production release versions.
