I'm in the process of building some tools
for manipulating users in a Samba LDAP account
backend. This will mostly likely be ing Perl
using the Mozilla::LDAP module.
Here's the RFC...
Right now, I have an quick and dirty script to upload
a smbpasswd file to the LDAP server. My plan are to
also include tools for...
* add / deleting accounts
* enabling / disabling accounts
* setting passwords
* updating account information
I know that I could just extend .../bin/smbpasswd, but
writing the scripts in Perl would also allow for a Perl/TK
GUI that could run on any platform for the most part (Windows,
Solaris, Linux, etc...) This would basically be a Usrmgr
type interface with the headache of RPC and named pipes.
What say everyone? is there enough interest for this?
>From my part of view the automation scripts come first
and the GUI later.
Comments, suggestions and/or help welcome,
