Hi Saurabh,

Strange that nobody seemed to have replied to your question.

Anyway: if I were a programmer I would have tried to add functionality 
to the logging part of samba:

- we very much miss detailed information on failed authentication 
attempts on our DC's.

A failed auth attempt on a samba DC is logged with no details at all, 
like. The most valuale one would be:

- coming-from ip address

Sadly I cannot add this myself, but since you ARE a c programmer, and 
asked for things you could add to samba...: This addition would be _very 
much_ welcomed by us.

Another thing was written by Andrew Bartlett, today on this list:
