Good Day all

I have a quick question regarding the use of the flag --random-password.
When i do a command like:

samba-tool user add pippo --random-password ;

as root, I'd like to see what is the newly generated random password, and
then communicate that to the user , but the output of that command does not
show anything...

any help? :)
