Look in source/smbd/vfs.c.  You get the default vfs_ops
struct unless overridden in the service definition (i.e.
vfs_init_custom() ).

?  The client log and server logs are isolated by the
different ends on the conversation.  You can't consolidate
the server log files into the client log.  Not sure exactly
what you are asking here.
