I would like to understand if it's possible to use /etc/passwd and /etc/shadow like backend for LDB.
If not, would it be possible to use samba-tool or something similar to create the new user with password hash in MD5?

Is there perhaps an API to Samba4 which can be used for user management, especially creating/modifying users when password is MD5 hash?

Thank you in advance for your answers.
