     My apologies.  From the Domain Controller itself. I'm currently 
using "log level = 0" in my smb.conf file. I have 6 DC's and I would 
like to verify if users are authenticating against their local DC and 
not going over our WAN link. Using Ubuntu 12.04 with Samba 4.1.5. I 
would prefer not to do this from the actual workstation.
