      I was testing Samba 3.0.1 as a logon server on a Solaris 9 Sparc box.
I compiled Samba using gcc 3.3 with the following options:

configure --prefix=/local/samba-3.0.1 --enable-static --with-nis
--with-quotas --with-syslog --with-msdfs --with-utmp

      I set utmp = yes in the smb.conf file

      The samba server does create login entries but minus the hostname
entries.  The following lists the after and before login entries:

      With Samba 3.0.1

      With Samba 2.2.8a I was getting the following:

ochomoj   smb/6        docsdp100        Mon Dec 22 23:11 - 23:59  (00:47)

regoa     smb/4        gefpq198         Mon Dec 22 22:59 - 00:46  (01:46)

      Please advise whether this is intentional and if there is a
workaround since knowing which PCs are being used by specific staff is
essential for troubleshooting
