Here is what happened in my env, I can see the smb_file.log if I use smbclient from Linux. But when I do mount, I don't see the log. I'm not expert on this, and it is only what I see.

    First the thing I have to say - please update to 2.5.5. There are only
    minor changes to 2.5.1 and a lot of fixed security issues.
    Or - consider upgrading to 2.6 (which admittedly has a bunch of changes).

    I think you are right and that it should typically be logged.
    There are 2 ways that I would start debugging this. First - if possible,
    make a pcap of an operation that you would expect to create the
    Run that through bro, and see if it is there now; if not, take a look at
    smb_cmd.log and look if you can find activity that corresponds to the file
    copying in there.
