Maybe in the near future I'll set up a new fileserver. That way, I believe
that ad as a backend is the best choice.

I have about 1000 users in our DC. They are all without unix attributes
configured, as I inserted them via script + samba-tool. I know I can edit
each user via "samba-too user edit <options>". Knowing this, I believe it
is possible to insert these attributes via script.

In the script I commented above, I inserted users by reading a csv file
that contained those users. Can I read these users directly from DC to
insert the new attributes?
