Launching Samba And Having Logs

Hi all,

I try to setup a Samba/Openchange service. In the Oopenchange documentation, they advise to launch samba in an interactive mode and a verbose level: I like that. http://www.openchange.org/cookbook/configuring.html
# samba -d3 -i -M single

The problem is I want to launch it via an init script (CentOS6)

# ….
SMBDOPTIONS=” -d3 -M single ”
# ….
start() {
echo -n $”Starting Samba services: ”
daemon samba $SMBDOPTIONS
RETVAL=$?
echo
[ $RETVAL -eq 0 ] && touch /var/lock/subsys/$SAMBA_NAME || \
RETVAL=1
return $RETVAL
}
# …

I dont get the same verbose output in any log file in “/var/log/samba/”

How to get the same verbosity in a log file when launching samba from an init script?

BTW, I dont understand what is the difference between
/var/log/samba4/log.samba and /var/log/samba4/log.smbd

Thank you very much.
