Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
Previously, all the SAMBA clients having access to a specific Red Hat Storage volume would log messages in a single log file making it difficult to debug issues. With this fix, by default, a log file is created for every SAMBA client and the log file name will have the clients' internet name appended to it making it easy to identify.

Comment 5 surabhi 2013-12-12 01:05:27 EST
Tested per client per volume logging in gluster version :

Seperate log is getting created per volume but per client logging still can't be verified as it is showing : glusterfs-dis-rep.%M.log glusterfs-new-vol.%M.log.
To verify the per client logging we need new samba build with the fix.
Moving the bug back to assigned.
Comment 6 Vivek Agarwal 2013-12-13 03:54:56 EST
Removing it from Corbett per bug triage 12/13, will revive it for when the upstream samba patch gets merged.
Comment 7 Gowrishankar Rajaiyan 2013-12-13 04:14:37 EST
Patch in comment #4 for logs per volume has been tested and verified. However, complete verification can be done only with new samba build.
Comment 8 Poornima G 2013-12-24 06:38:40 EST
