Would 'utmp' and 'utmp directory' help?
This is from the smb.conf manual page:
| utmp (G)
| This boolean parameter is only available if Samba has been con-
| figured and compiled with the option --with-utmp. If set to
| yes then Samba will attempt to add utmp or utmpx records
| (depending on the UNIX system) whenever a connection is made to
| a Samba server. Sites may use this to record the user connect-
| ing to a Samba share.
| utmp directory (G)
| This parameter is only available if Samba has been configured
| and compiled with the option --with-utmp. It specifies a
| directory pathname that is used to store the utmp or utmpx
| files (depending on the UNIX system) that record user connec-
| tions to a Samba server. By default this is not set, meaning
| the system will use whatever utmp file the native system is set
| to use (usually/var/run/utmp on Linux).
