The name of the machine you're connected from is %m, the username
assigned to this machine is %u and this is the name the machine
authenticates itself into your Domain.
IDEALX script smbldap-adduser.pl is necessary to create posixAccount in
LDAP to allow authentication to take place. It is smart enough (got
smarter?) to add '$' tail to the name if '-w' option is used with a name
As per 'all_string_sub(add_script, "%u", account, sizeof(account));'
mentioned previously - it acctually does nothing at all. The previous
lp_addmachine_script() function returns all variables substituted thanks
to the magic of alloc_sub_basic().
Hope it help,
