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

Actually, there were 2 problems. These lines work for me:

    #user=$(echo "${user}" | awk -F '\\' '{print $2}')
user_expire_date=$(ldbsearch --url="${LDBDB}" -b "${domainDN}" -s sub "(&(objectCategory=person)(objectClass=user)(sAMAccountName=$user))" msDS-UserPasswordExpiryTimeComputed | grep "msDS-UserPasswordExpiryTimeComputed: " | sed "s|msDS-UserPasswordExpiryTimeComputed: ||")
    date_now=$(date +%s)
    exp_days=$(((${UNIXTimeStamp} - ${date_now}) / 3600 / 24))

With the 'awk' the user is empty. Querying $user before the awk shows the correct user name without "DOMAIN\". This line seems not to be necessary for me.

I also had to remove the quotes in the 3rd and last of these lines:

./mailtest_rowland.sh: line 29: ("131479598790000000"/10000000)-11644473600: syntax error: operand expected (error token is ""131479598790000000"/10000000)-11644473600")

Never mind. However, with your update I get the following error right
on the first found "user":

./mailtest_rowland.sh: line 27: (""/10000000)-11644473600: syntax
error: operand expected (error token is """/10000000)-11644473600")

I initially got that, so I added:
user=$(echo "${user}" | awk -F '\\' '{print $2}')

because, 'wbinfo -u' gives you 'DOMAIN\username'

It looks like for some reason this is failing, are you using 'dash'
instead of 'bash' ?

You could try adding 'echo "User: ${user}" ' above and below line 25

i.e. Change:

for user in $user_list; do
     user=$(echo "${user}" | awk -F '\\' '{print $2}')


for user in $user_list; do
     echo "User: ${user}"
     user=$(echo "${user}" | awk -F '\\' '{print $2}')
     echo "User: ${user}"

This should print the username before and after the removal of the
domain name and then break out of the loop.
