The Samba-Bugzilla – Bug 914
UTMP logging in Samba 3.0.1 does not have hostnames
Last modified: 2004-12-25 22:34:35 UTC
I was testing Samba 3.0.1 as a logon server on a Solaris 9 Sparc box. I
compiled Samba using gcc 3.3 with the following options:
configure --prefix=/local/samba-3.0.1 --enable-static --with-nis --with-quotas
--with-syslog --with-msdfs --with-utmp
I set utmp = yes in the smb.conf file
The samba server does create login entries but minus the hostname entries. The
following lists the after and before login entries:
With Samba 3.0.1
mackensj smb/1 Tue Dec 23 11:22 - 11:24 (00:02)
regoa smb/2 Tue Dec 23 11:22 - 11:24 (00:02)
cunningg smb/2 Tue Dec 23 11:21 - 11:21 (00:00)
With Samba 2.2.8a I was getting the following:
ochomoj smb/6 docsdp100 Mon Dec 22 23:11 - 23:59 (00:47)
wichmanr smb/7 unchs25 Mon Dec 22 23:07 - 23:07 (00:00)
regoa smb/4 gefpq198 Mon Dec 22 22:59 - 00:46 (01:46)
Please advise whether this is intentional and if there is a workaround since
knowing which PCs are being used by specific staff is essential for troubleshooting

We should log hostnames in utmp if the #define HAVE_UT_UT_HOST is
set in include/config.h.
Can you send a copy of your include/config.h file please ?
Created attachment 353 [details]
config header file
/include/config.h file as requested by Jeremy.
The same behavior here, only the IP gets logged in utmp not the hostname.
#define HAVE_UT_UT_HOST 1
System: linux kernel 2.2.20 (base system RH6.2) with glibc 2.1.3
To see hostnames, and not IP addresses you must set:
hostname lookups = yes
I have this running, in production, and always get hostnames. Given I've not
heard of anything like this on the lists, and this is against 3.0.1, I'm
inclined to close it. If you still have problems with the above set, then feel
free to re-open it.
