Re: [Samba] Users list and the date the password will expire

Hi list,

long time no see! :)

I was looking for an email reminder script for users whose password will expire. Some of our users are on long travels and will never see the Domain's default notification. I haven't found any complete (and simple) solution online. So I wrote one. In case it helps anyone, you find it below.

You should only have to fill in the blanks for the the "basedn" search parameter. Time conversion methods are taken from here:




max_pwAge=`samba-tool domain passwordsettings show | grep "Maximum password age" | tr -dc '0-9'`
user_list=`wbinfo -u`


for user in $user_list; do

set_date=`ldbsearch -H /usr/local/samba/private/sam.ldb -s sub -b $basedn cn=$user | grep pwdLastSet | tr -dc '0-9'`

        if [ $set_date ] && [ $set_date -gt 1 ]; then

                then_sec=`date -d "1970-01-01 $UNIXTimeStamp sec GMT" +%s`
                now_sec=`date +%s`
                diff_days=$(( ( $now_sec - $then_sec )/60/60/24 ))
                exp_days=$(( $max_pwAge - $diff_days ))

if [ $exp_days == 90 ] || [ $exp_days == 60 ] || [ $exp_days == 30 ]; then

mail_string=`ldbsearch -H /usr/local/samba/private/sam.ldb -s sub -b $basedn cn=$user | grep mail` echo "Gotcha: $user" | mail -s "WARNING: Your domain account password will expire in $exp_days days!" ${mail_string:6}
