Seeing this reminded me that I have been meaning to post a script I
wrote for user management in my complex-ish SMB-LDAP environment. It's
fairly complete, including the ability to add, remove, disable, or
enable users singly or in batches. It dynamically creates unique
useranmes based on their real names and graduation year. My environment
also has multiple servers for home servers, so it supports moving home
directories around and whatnot. It requires the idealx smbldap tools and
perl for one little bit. Everything else it depends on (awk, pwgen,
grep, etc...) should be pretty standard on most systems.
I'm sure bugs abound as it has just sort of grown organically as the
need for more features has come up, but hopefully someone will find it
useful or inspirational. It can't be used by anyone else without some
modification however. Also, I'm always looking for ways to improve it,
I'm sure there are many, so feedback would be greatly appreciated if you
have the time and inclination to look at it.
