[Samba] Event Logging in Samba 4

I have configured samba 4 as a Domain Controller and its working fine. 
But there is one problem with event logs in samba4. I found this samba 
wiki page that explain how to setup event logs in samba. Following is 
the link of that page.


The problem I came up is when I add "eventlog list" line to smb.conf and 
restart, it gives following error;

Unknown parameter encountered: "eventlog list"
Ignoring unknown parameter "eventlog list"
Processing section "[netlogon]"
Processing section "[sysvol]"

But when I add the same line in samba3 it wont give any errors.

So is this event log feature is not added to samba4 or did I do some 
thing wrong?

Here is my smb.conf in samba4:

         server role = domain controller
         workgroup = AITKEN
         realm = pdc.abc.lk
         netbios name = PDC
         setup directory = setup/
eventlog list = Application System Security SyslogLinux

         path = /usr/local/samba/var/locks/sysvol/pdc.abc.lk/scripts
         read only = No

         path = /usr/local/samba/var/locks/sysvol
         read only = No

Thanks and Best Regards,
