Yuor reply : 
Look in source/smbd/vfs.c.  You get the default
struct unless overridden in the service definition
vfs_init_custom() ).

---------------------------------->Thank you for the
Regarding the first one, I traced the function pointer
from the default vfs_ops struct, to 

In this function, mkdir(path,mode) is called (line no.
124). This token leads to 
smbwrapper/wrapped.c/mkdir()	line no. 345
However, this function does not seem to get called, as
the DEBUG statements in this function are not seen in
the log files. Does any other function (maybe a system
function) get called? Or is there a problem with the
DEBUG statement?

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

As you have stated correctly  the client and server
logs are not consolidated. However, what I want to
know is where do the DEBUG statements in the client
code (for example client/client.c/do_this_one() line
no. 309) get printed? Also, where are the d_printf()
statements printed?
