good morning all,

i have a fc2 server running samba 3.0.10-1.

from my daily logwatch i get these type of entries:

smbd/service.c:make_connection_snum(648)  workstation1 ( connect
to service share1 initially as user user1 (uid=802, gid=512) (pid 28851) : 5

on all shares that user1 connects to, i get the same message identifying the
share (share2, share3, etc...) with same pid number.
the same thing happens with user2 with a different pid number.

the setup is pretty vanilla.
i use smbpasswd to authenticate.
the server is the domain/local master.

    workgroup    = office1
    netbios name = server1
    encrypt passwords = yes
    name resolve order = wins hosts lmhosts bcast
    login script = scripts\%U.bat
    logon path = \\%L\%U\profile
    domain logons = yes
    os level =65
    preferred master = yes
    domain master = yes
    wins support = yes
    local master = true
    admin users = admin
    load printers = yes
    printing = cups
    use client driver = yes
    printer admin = @admin
    unix charset = iso8859-1
    log level = 1
    use sendfile = no

shares are basic.... homes, netlogon, printing, and data shares.  nothing

users are able to access shares, directories, files, read, write, delete,
print with no noticeable problems.

the log entries are my concern.

much ado about nothing?

thank you,
