OK, I initially pointed you at 'samba-tool --help' because that appears 
to be the easiest way of getting info about samba-tool, but anyway, here 
are the answers to your questions:

  A) samba-tool user setexpiry --noexpiry Username

B) samba-tool domain passwordsettings --complexity=off

C) samba-tool domain passwordsettings set --history-length=0

The documentation for samba is not as good as it could be, but it is 
getting better now that there is a documentation team, but Rome wasn't 
built in a day.
