/var/log/samba is already used as default log location and everything has been setup for this.

However the given example smb.conf still uses:
log file = /usr/local/samba/var/log..

Would it be possible to set this to /var/log/samba instead, e.g. using a sed?

Additional info:
* 4.7.4-1
* smb.conf example

Steps to reproduce:
Installed on a new server.
This task depends upon
