Since some of my customers shut down the machine during night hours I have to
run logrotate "by day".
Don't want to study anacron...

I have 2.0.4b and pre2.0.5.
Are you sayng that you can:
1) move the log.smb file elsewhere
2) killall -1 smbd 
and it recreates a new log.smb?
Does it recreate it at once or after smbd serves a file?
