Hi Alejandro,

Currently the setupn subcommand will remove the upn if no arguments are 
provided. This could be quite dangerous: consider the following (however 
improbable) scenario:
User fails to define the argument and the command wipes off the upn (if 
its run as a batch job it could wipe off upn's off of multiple accounts).

I think it would be better to provide separate add, delete and list 
subcommands within upn submenu (in a similar fashion to existing 
samba-tool spn command).

Also given that samba-tool user create automatically generates upn for 
new users maybe the migration script should do the same?

You also need to add torture tests for the new functionality (in similar 
fashion to other samba-tool commands)
