User and Group and Computer accountd management with samba-tool

Adding Users into Samba Active Directory

You add / delete users with samba-tool

Unlike Samba 3, running Samba 4 as an AD DC or Unix AD domain member does not require a local Unix user for each Samba user that is created.

An example of adding a User + Login Profile for the user fbaggins

This assumes that ADSMember is being used as a Unix Member server that stores the profile and shares and the new users password will be P4ssw0rd*

$ samba-tool user create fbaggins P4ssw0rd*
 --use-username-as-cn --surname="Baggins"
 --given-name="Frodo" --initials=S
 --mail-address=fbaggins@samdom.example.com
 --company="Hobbiton Inc." --script-path=shire.bat
 --profile-path=\\\\ADSMember.samdom.example.com\\profiles\\fbaggins
 --home-drive=F
 --home-directory=\\\\ADSMember.samdom.example.com\\fbaggins
 --job-title="Goes there and back again"



To inspect the allocated user ID and SID, use the following commands:

$ wbinfo --name-to-sid USERNAME
S-1-5-21-4036476082-4153129556-3089177936-1005 SID_USER (1)

$ wbinfo --sid-to-uid S-1-5-21-4036476082-4153129556-3089177936-1005
3000011
