You can use syslog If it was a buggy entry, testparm would detect it as invalid config. Logging to files doesn't work very well with OMV's log viewer as well. Samba uses the last value it reads. Don't know why samba creates those empty log files, but IMO this is not an OMV issue because the config looks correct and consistent.
And no, i will not do discussions about this on github! Its your job to rtfm sambadocus because you build configs by your design! But Testparm is not the omniscient garbage dump! You are confusing who can make the change and who told you to file an issue on github.
Only Volker votdev can. Yes, you see testparm complain about deprecated entries.
logs in samba server
These are not gone yet. There was a github issue about this and it was decided to leave them since they will never be removed from the version of samba on Debian Stretch and OMV has already moved on to OMV 5.
There were removed from OMV 5. I mentioned testparm because you said invalid entry not deprecated or old.
And its not a theoretical discussion, it manifests on wrong logs or better 0-logs. And now again I just linked to it. Did you even look? Not sure what else you want. I have an opinion and I am fine with my samba logs which I barely use going to syslog. When I enable logging above the "none" level in the web interface and check the audit button for the share, I see audit logs in syslog.
That is a working feature regardless of whether you say it isn't a valid parameter. If you want something else, that is a feature not a bug fix and last I knew, Volker was not adding new features to 4. I tried to help but this is just turning unpleasant.Generating and reading system logs is an important aspect of system administration.
The information in system logs can be used to detect hardware and software issues as well as application and system configuration errors. This information also plays an important role in security auditing and incident response. Most system daemons and applications will generate log entries. FreeBSD provides a system logger, syslogdto manage logging. By default, syslogd is started when the system boots. Refer to syslogd 8 for more information on the available arguments. This section describes how to configure the FreeBSD system logger for both local and remote logging and how to perform log rotation and log management.
There are several parameters to control the handling of incoming events. The facility describes which subsystem generated the message, such as the kernel or a daemon, and the level describes the severity of the event that occurred. This makes it possible to configure if and where a log message is logged, depending on the facility and level.
It is also possible to take action depending on the application that sent the message, and in the case of remote logging, the hostname of the machine generating the logging event. This configuration file contains one line per action, where the syntax for each line is a selector field followed by an action field.
The syntax of the selector field is facility. It is also possible to add an optional comparison flag before the level to specify more precisely what is logged. Multiple selector fields can be used for the same action, and are separated with a semicolon. The action field denotes where to send the log message, such as to a file or remote log host. As an example, here is the default syslog. Line 8 matches all messages with a level of err or higher, as well as kern.
Line 33 is an example usage of a program specification. This makes the rules following it only valid for the specified program. The available levels, in order from most to least critical are emergalertcriterrwarningnoticeinfoand debug. The facilities, in no particular order, are authauthprivconsolecrondaemonftpkernlprmailmarknewssecuritysysloguseruucpand local0 through local7.
Be aware that other operating systems might have different facilities. For more information about the different levels and facilities, refer to syslog 3 and syslogd 8.
Log files can grow quickly, taking up disk space and making it more difficult to locate useful information. Log management attempts to mitigate this. In FreeBSD, newsyslog is used to manage log files. This built-in program periodically rotates and compresses log files, and optionally creates missing log files and signals programs when log files are moved.Shares are created to make part or all of a pool accessible to other computers on the network.
The type of share to create depends on factors like which operating systems are being used by computers on the network, security requirements, and expectations for network transfer speeds.
Shares are created to provide and control access to an area of storage. Before creating shares, making a list of the users that need access to storage data, which operating systems these users are using, whether all users should have the same permissions to the stored data, and whether these users should authenticate before accessing the data is recommended. This information can help determine which type of shares are needed, whether multiple datasets are needed to divide the storage into areas with different access and permissions, and how complex it will be to set up those permission requirements.
Note that shares are used to provide access to data. When a share is deleted, it removes access to data but does not delete the data itself. Fast access from any operating system can be obtained by configuring the FTP service instead of a share and using a cross-platform FTP file manager application such as Filezilla.
Secure FTP can be configured if the data needs to be encrypted. It is slower than unencrypted FTP due to the encryption overhead, but the data passing through the network is encrypted. It is generally a mistake to share a pool or dataset with more than one share type or access method. Different types of shares and services use different file locking methods.

This results in lost edits and confused users. This corrupts the files on the AFP share. Pick the one type of share or service that makes the most sense for the types of clients accessing that pool, and use that single type of share or service. To support multiple types of shares, divide the pool into datasets and use one dataset per share. This section describes the configuration screen for fine-tuning AFP shares. The configuration options shown in Figure The values showing for these options will vary, depending upon the information given when the share was created.
Table Leaving these options at the default settings is recommended as changing them can cause unexpected behavior. Most settings are only available with Advanced Mode. Do not change an advanced option without fully understanding the function of that option. Refer to Setting up Netatalk for a more detailed explanation of these options. When a guest share is created along with a share that requires authentication, AFP only maps users who log in as guest to the guest share.
If a user logs in to the share that requires authentication, permissions on the guest share can prevent that user from writing to the guest share. The only way to allow both guest and authenticated users to write to a guest share is to set the permissions on the guest share to or to add the authenticated users to a guest group and set the permissions to 77x.
I've tried to edit the rsyslog config file:. This parameter maps how Samba debug messages are logged onto the system syslog logging levels. This parameter sets the threshold for sending messages to syslog. Only messages with debug level less than this value will be sent to syslog. There still will be some logging to log. You gould put. It would probably be a good idea to check through the smb.

Hi to all, I've done another test, I have disabled the Active Directory, to check if it was the problem with auditing, but I've not solved!
If nothing can help me, i try to move this thread to Bug Section! Joined Mar 31, Messages 7. Joined Sep 19, Messages Any additional info on this? Joined Nov 24, Messages 2. Was this ever resolved. Is there any documentation on how to setup file auditing within FreeNAS?This menu shows the name and status of each directory service.
Active Directory AD is a service for sharing resources in a Windows network. AD can be configured on a Windows server that is running Windows Server or higher or on a Unix-like operating system that is running Samba version 4.
Ensure name resolution is properly configured before configuring the Active Directory service. Active Directory relies on Kerberos, a time-sensitive protocol.
An Alert is sent when the time is out of sync. Figure Table Some settings are only available in Advanced Mode.
If a certificate does not exist, create a Certificate Authoritythen create a certificate on the Active Directory server. To clear a saved certificate, choose the blank entry and click SAVE. Each backend has its own man page that gives implementation details.
Changing idmap backends automatically refreshes the windbind resolver cache by sending SIGHUP signal hang up to the parent windbindd process. This occurs automatically once a day as a cron job.
If there are problems connecting to the realm, verify the settings do not include any disallowed characters. The length of those names is also limited to 15 characters. Once populated, the AD users and groups will be available in the drop-down menus of the Permissions screen of a dataset.
In addition, wbinfo -m shows the domains and wbinfo -t tests the connection. When successful, wbinfo -t shows a message similar to:. Sometimes network users do not appear in the drop-down menu of a Permissions screen but the wbinfo commands display these users.
How to create a Windows share with FreeNAS
Increase the value of AD timeout to 60 seconds.Our libraries are also growing rapidly: where you used to get by setting aside a few bookshelves for your books, CDs, DVDs and VHS tapes, we now require untold server space to preserve our beloved media in digitized form. We also want our data to be itinerant, or at least seem that way.
That is, if you want to take a book or disc to another room of your abode, you pull it from the bookshelf and take it with you. Similarly, if you're working on a document upstairs on your desktop and you want to move to the den with your laptop, you'll need the proper infrastructure working in the background to enable that kind of wizardry. So, how can we create this "digital bookshelf? Can you build it in your garage? As it turns out, the answer is "yes" on all counts.
You could go out and buy a Drobo device but in this case, we're going to assemble our own. And we're going to do that with the help of an open source storage platform called FreeNAS. So how involved a process is that?
Meet us after the break to find out. What is FreeNAS you say? Put simply, it's is an operating system based on FreeBSD that brings with it a snazzy web interface for management, and all the protocols you need to share files between Windows, Mac and Linux. In other words, a perfect solution for your digital bookshelf. Let's get to it. More on that later. A system board with a decent amount of SATA ports. We found 4GB worked just fine. At least three SATA hard drives.
As with RAM, the more hard drives you have, the better. One CAT5 cable. This thing needs to connect to your home network, obviously.
Version 8. Howeversince the economy is tough and budgets are tight, we wanted to show that you don't necessarily need the bee's knees of hardware to get FreeNAS up and running. If you wanted to take it one step further, you could mirror the ZIL with two solid-state drives. This would provide a very redundant and high-performing NAS. However, the scope of this how-to is strictly getting a cheap FreeNAS environment up and running with the most basic of hardware.
Especially since flooding in the Asia-Pacific areas have caused HD prices to nearly double in price, 1TB drives do not come cheap compared to a year ago. If you're one of those extremely cautious people who has to double check everythinghere's a URL to the FreeNAS hardware requirements.
We recommend you at least glance at them if you're going to go out and hunt down shiny new hardware. Once you've got your hardware squared away we have to get some things out in the open : FreeNAS needs to be installed on a USB drive separate from the disks you intend to use for your storage volumes. FreeNAS can not utilize the drive on which it's installed for storage. So, that's why you need that USB stick. Think about where you want to keep your FreeNAS box.
