Re: [Samba] Accentuated characters issue when receiving attributes from "samba user syncpasswords"




Thank you again for your advice. You were right, much easier to use a
parser.
I just had to find a light one, because python-ldap is so heavy, and need
to be compiled.
I found https://pypi.python.org/pypi/ldif3 which is perfect for the job.

Cheers,

Fabien Toune
