It is very easy to get a list of users from Samba AD with a simple
script, you could use something like this:


DNSDOMAIN=$(hostname -d)

DC=$(host -t SRV _kerberos._udp.${DNSDOMAIN} | awk '{print $NF}'| sed
's/.$//' | head -n1 | awk -F '.' '{print $1}')

SUFFIX="dc=$(echo "${DNSDOMAIN}" | sed 's|\.|,dc=|g')"

ldbsearch -H ldap://${DC} -P -b "${SUFFIX}" -s sub
"(&(objectClass=user)(!(objectClass=computer)))" samaccountname | grep
sAMAccountName | sed "s|sAMAccountName: ||"

exit 0
