active directory + samba + ntlm + squid + dansguardian log file

Respected Sir,
I had implemented the active directory + samba + ntlm + squid + dansguardian.

The problem is that the log is formed in /var/log/dansguardian/access.log

When i read the log it is giving the following information:

DATE TIME IP SITENAME and STATUS whether it is banned or not.

My question is that i need the name of the user who is sitting on that
machine and the sites he has seen.

obviously that user will have the entry in active directory.

I will be very thankful if anybody can help me out.
With Regards

To answer your question we need the following as these does matter at least it did in my case.
1. OS version
2. SQUID version: compiled/OS default? If compiled then compilation options?
3. DG version
4. Samba version: compiled/OS Default?

I did the thing on test basis and was successful but its very painful. As slightest mismatch will prompt the user a login pop up window which is very annoying.

it's a config option

Whether or not to include information that might identify an individual -such as username- in the DansGuardian logs is a config option. Set either 'anonymizelogs = on' or 'anonymizelogs = off'.

If your DansGuardian logs don't include username, but you want them to, edit dansguardian.conf to change to
anonymizelogs = off
then restart DansGuardian.

thanks! -Chuck Kollars
