The Samba-Bugzilla – Bug 4731
ignores "syslog only" config parameter and writes to log files /var/log/samba/log.[sn]mbd anyway
Last modified: 2007-09-11 23:59:28 UTC
some time ago we discussed the two options "syslog only" and "syslog" of smb.conf
See http://bugs.debian.org/311300 for all details.
Please add a small note to these two options that there still will be some logging occur into log.[sn]mbd even if "syslog only" is enabled.
Fixed. Will first appear in 3.2.0 series.
