Description Joe Buehler 2004-11-02 09:11:00 UTC
I used to be able to use the -l option in
Samba 2.0/2.2 to set the output log file name
to include the machine name -- I log many machines
to a single AFS directory.

This doesn't appear to work in Samba 3.  It looks
like the -l option is now just a directory and
there is no way for me to include the machine name
in the name of the log file.

correct.  The current behavior is by default.  However, you 
can use smb.conf variables in the 'log file' directive in smb.conf.
e,g, log file = /var/log/samba/%L.log
