Extract the value of the password lifetime into the LIFETIME variable:

 	LIFETIME=`samba-tool domain passwordsettings show | \
 		grep "^Maximum password age (days):" | awk '{print $5}'`

and then, for the user in question, extract the value of pwdLastSet into 
LASTSET (perhaps from ldbsearch), and then:

 	echo "Password expires $EXPIRESSTR"
