The script may work when you run it manually, but the error samba-tool
throws is this:
ERROR(<class 'TypeError'>): uncaught exception - memoryview: a
bytes-like object is required, not 'str'
If you examine the error, samba-tool runs your script with this:
line 2001, in run_sync_command
reply = bytes(sync_command_p.communicate(input), encoding = 'utf-8')
After that 'subprocess.py' is called and the error seems to coming from
there. Samba doesn't import all of 'subprocess', it only does this: from
subprocess import Popen, PIPE, STDOUT, check_call, CalledProcessError
The error output goes on to do this:
File "/usr/lib/python3.6/subprocess.py", line 863, in communicate
stdout, stderr = self._communicate(input, endtime, timeout)
File "/usr/lib/python3.6/subprocess.py", line 1519, in _communicate
input_view = memoryview(self._input)
And it is 'memoryview' that throws the error and it looks like it is
something in subprocess.py that is wrong, or something in your script.
Samba, as far as I can see, does not use 'memoryview' directly.
