Samba User management Linux


Recommended Posts

Yo people

I am wondering, how do you with only one command add a user to the system and also to the samba server...

so like instead of going

adduser toto

password: blablabla

and after

smbpasswd too


is there a way to just do it with one command?

maybe through a bashscript?

A bit of googling found that the following will make smbpasswd's password prompting happy. Presumably something similar will work with useradd (although useradd accepts the paasword in encrypted form from the command line).

echo -e "$passwordn$password" | smbpasswd -a -s $user && echo OK SMB
