This was working properly before updating samba. Thhe only log lines in /etc/samba/smb.conf are:
Code:
   log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m
   max log size = 50
/var/log/messages is filling up with junk like:
Code:
Apr 26 21:18:40 MSI nmbd[4462]: [2018/04/26 21:18:40.813664,  0] ../source3/nmbd/nmbd_namequery.c:109(query_name_response)
Apr 26 21:18:40 MSI nmbd[4462]:   query_name_response: Multiple (2) responses received for a query on subnet 192.168.0.104 for name GREENGABLES<1d>.
Apr 26 21:18:40 MSI nmbd[4462]:   This response was from IP 192.168.0.102, reporting an IP address of 192.168.0.102.
Repeated over and over.
GREENGABLES is the LAN name. samba-4.7.7

Do you have a line that states "logging = file"?

Anyway, we need to see the output of:

Code:

$ testparm -slv | grep log


testparm -slv shows you all settings that are in use including defaults and passing it through "grep log" helps cover today's conundrum.

Reverted to 4.5.16 and all is well.

Sorry for the late reply. I've been out of town and just got back.
