Hi Richard,

Sorry for the late reply, email got filtered to special folder.

There was a requirement to redirect the messages from 'smbd main process'
to a separate log file. The spawned smbd's will log to the respective log
files( file with name 'client-ip.log') which is fine for us.

So I was looking for the function where I can place the code which creates
the the samba_main_proc.log file. I have placed it in function
, and it seems working fine.
