wouldn't a shell script work here? Write a script that takes arguments
and pass them to smbpasswd and passwd individually.
# $1 = username
# $2 = passwd
echo "$2" | passwd --stdin $1
smbpasswd $1 "$2"
then call it with script.sh username "password"
or you can feed the password on stdin. I don't know of the security
concerns here so someone speak up.
