Thanks to all of the great help and advice I decided to tackle solving
my problems (in my test environment) in rolling out samba4 as a single
centralized authentication and user store or UNIX and Windows
environments. As-is samba4 seems great, but was missing any
functionality to add and manage
the important "posixAccount" and "posixGroup" object classes.
After trolling the archives and google I have decided on an approach
much like "steve" but with a little more functionality.
The idea of using 'passwd' and 'group' records was from Bernd Markgraf
and seems quite nice to me.
The script is called s4imu.pl (samba 4 identity management for unix -
Use it like:
./s4imu.pl --user "alice:x:1000:1000:Alice Person:/home/alice:/bin/bash"
./s4imu.pl --user "bob:x:1001:1001:Bob Guy:/home/bob:/bin/bash"
./s4imu.pl --group "staff:x:2000:alice,bob"
Check the top of the script for more info.
This code is purely to help any others who might find it useful, and is
not production ready or anything like that. Hopefully someone else will
find this useful.
I had initially thought to add the functionality to samba-tool, but
decided against it because:
- I'm experienced in perl and not so much in python
- I figured integrating into samba-tool would have all kinds of semantic
Your feedback appreciated.
