[Samba] Samba-tool modify users info?

You can modify a user's attributes manually by using ldbedit. You can also modify a user's attributes via an LDIF file and the ldbmodify command . 
The first one may be easier/faster if you have to change only one thing; the second one is definitely more robust for large amounts of modifying and lends itself well to scripting. Check out http://www.zytrax.com/books/ldap/ch8/ for information on LDIF files. 

Good luck,

I'm wondering if there's a plan for including the possibility of modifying user attributes (must-change-at_next-login, profile-path, home-drive, home-directory, etc)? 

For the moment, it seems the only way to do this is when the user is created (samba-tool newuser) or by doing so via 'administrative tools' via a Windows machine. 

Thank You!
