Meanwhile i've been thinking, i might switch over to python, freenas apparently does support that well, python fits me more.
Been programming neural networks, so i can do my stuff easier i saw there was a ADSI and LDAP way to work with.

And no freenas wasn't running samba

Is it good workable to use ADSI in vbscript to manage SAMBA based AD ?.  (ADSI ?)

I need to create lots of groups (100+), and set some nested memberships based upon some scripting logic
The same group input will be used in freenas (that part is solved by a script) to modify permissions.

On freenas i like to set resource groups as per folder-name.
In which per folder several AD groups will become members based upon some script logic.
 Somewhat tangential to the question. Is the FreeNAS server a Domain Controller? If so, do note that this is no longer a supported configuration. The last version supporting it was FreeNAS 11.2 (Samba 4.9), with it (both FN 11.2 and Samba 4.9) being now EOL.
