Re: [Samba] Log rotation issue




Hi,

Continuing on the same subject, the VARIABLE SUBSTITUTIONS are not working. for example, I want to have the date & time attached to the samba log file. Hence I modified the smb.conf

log file = /var/log/samba/samba.%T.log

The file with name "samba.%T.log" gets created in /var/log/samba folder and %T will not get substituted with current date & time.

I request for your guidance to correct this part. Also the samba continues to write into .old file as well and not finding any means to correct it.


Many thanks for your guidance in advance.

Hi,

We recently migrated the samba-ad-dc from 4.6.5 to 4.7.1. Over a period of last 15 days or so we have been observing that although the samba log rotates, upon rotation, samba will start writing the logs to both the main log file and the <main log>.old file simultaneously. While, the main log file rotates properly, instead of deleting old file and create a new one on rotation, samba continues to write into the <main log>.old file and file size keeps increasing.

Any suggestion to fix it? Also, we need some suggestions to use wild card such as %h, %m etc for samba log.

Our smb.conf is shown below.
