[Snort-users] Snort 2.0 + MySQL + SMBalerts question

The Snort command line options for alerting or logging override *all* output
plugins specified in snort.conf [0].  If you want to use SMB alerts, then
use the SMB alert plugin and not the command line option [1].

Subject: [Snort-users] Snort 2.0 + MySQL + SMBalerts question

I am running Snort  monitoring two sensors. To do this I had to run 2
instances of snort. No big deal. However I would like to send samba alerts
to  designated workstations aswell. When I start snort with the -M switch
and hosts filename, it won't log to my MySQL db. Can you only log to
database or send samba alerts? Would I have to run another instance of snort
just for the smbalerts?
