Description : Add and remove user and groups stored (using ldap)
Ldapscripts are shell scripts that allow to manage POSIX accounts
(users, groups, machines) on an LDAP directory. They are similar to
smbldap-tools but are written in shellscript, not in PERL.
They only require OpenLDAP client commands (ldapadd, ldapdelete,
ldapsearch, ldapmodify, slappasswd) and make administrator's work a lot
easier avoiding him to configure PERL and each library dependencies
These scripts are very simple to configure by not requiring any
Samba-related information (SID, profiles, homes, ...) : management of
Samba attributes is entirely done by standard commands (net, smbpasswd
et pdbedit) used together with the scripts. Moreover, most of the
configuration is guessed from the one of libpam-ldap, and everything
should work out from the box for most users.
The scripts may be used independently - within command lines - or
automatically by Samba (like smbldap-tools), to handle POSIX information
within accounts before adding Samba information.
