I have about 1100 users on my system. I am setting up samba and I would
like to use encrypted password. I would like to automate the creation of
smbpasswd file. I have generated the smbpasswd with the mksmbpasswd.sh
script and now I have to add the passwords. I can not possibly type
passwords for 1100 users twice so I would like to automate them. I can
store users password file (temporarily) in normal text. I am writing a
script to take this password (fork smbpasswd and take control of its STDIN
from parent). It seems that smbpasswd ignores any input from the parent.
My questions are :
- What is smbpasswd input?
- Is there any script which does what I want to do?
