Hello again,

As i was adviced i tried a simple test with the % options (preexec in
global sections which did /usr/local/samba/bin/preecho %M %I, with preecho
containing echo $1 $2 >> /tmp/echo.txt)
This works perfectly, but then i tried to use %M and %I in some other
things in my smb.conf and it doesnt work there :(

whats wrong with :

   server string = server %L %M %m %I %v
   logon path = \\%L\Profiles\%M\%U

server string gives me : server beluga UNKNOWN nmb TNG-alpha
Same for logon path :(

How comes it worked in the preexec thing but not here ?
