Samba creates inconsistent log files.
There are both: smb.log and log.smb

ls -lstr /var/log/samba/
total 120
  16 -rw-r--r--    1 root     root        12622 Feb 15 14:46 chuck.log
  72 -rw-r--r--    1 root     root        65937 Feb 15 14:46 nmb.log
   4 -rw-r--r--    1 root     root         1197 Feb 15 14:47 smb.log
   4 -rw-r--r--    1 root     root          585 Feb 15 14:47 log.smb
  24 -rw-r--r--    1 root     root        22391 Feb 15 14:47 log.nmb

This is inconsistent. Samba should always use smb.log
as it set in RedHat config.
The *.log files are rotated by logrotate.

rpm -q samba

If the bug I entered about this, 16644, is way, way older than this one, and
provides more detail than this one does, then why was that bug marked as a
duplicate of this one and closed, instead of the reverse?

Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2001-02-15 20:51:11 UTC
This bug is public, the other isn't.

Comment 4 Bill Nottingham 2001-02-16 17:37:21 UTC
