I use Louis' scripts from https://github.com/thctlo/samba4 to backup my 
DCs per cronjob.

Can't remember when but I remember someone (Louis himself?) to notice 
that his backup script wasn't good enough anymore or something.

The Samba Wiki brings this:


So what is the recommended way to automate this?

Run the command for the online-backup from a script, with the password 
in the script?

What is best practice here? Thanks in advance, Stefan
