The "log file" parameter is just the name of the file. At the end you will
have the same log, don´t matter what is the file name.
To log who logged in the Domain you can do ./configure --with-utmp in the
compile time and add these lines to your smb.con:
utmp = Yes
utmp dir = /var/log
And it will create the files:
/var/log/utmpx -> this file with who is logged
/var/log/wtmpx -> this file with who ever logged.
I this very usefull.
Hope it helps.
