Our smb.conf specifies share level logging with:
log file = /var/log/samba/%S.log

This results in a log file named "%S.log". I would expect something like
sharename.log. Can anyone explain this? I have not been able to Google any

Samba 3.0.10-1.4e.2 as PDC on RedHat ELS4 with Windows XP2 clients

%m.log gives "machinename.log" as expected.
%m.%S.log gives "machinename.%S.log".
%s.log gives "%s.log"
