I'm trying to write a perl script to "add new users and set initial
passwords" for them using smbpasswd.
The relevant parts of the script are as follows
@tmp = split(/:/,);
$login = $tmp;
$password = $tmp;
print "$login $password\n";
exec("smbpasswd -a $login -s $password");
The print statement works and I see the username and password. However the
exec statement fails and just dispalys the smbpasswd help screen.
Is it possible to add new accounts and set their initial passwords with
