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

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

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

 		 EXPIRESSTR=`date -d @$EXPIRES`
 		 echo "Password expires $EXPIRESSTR"
