Samba - List User Details


Im looking to extract user information from a Samba database. More specifically im looking for Username, Full Name, Active/Disabled and Last Login Date.

Does anyone know the command and correct syntax I can use to achieve this.

Sorry if this is an easy answer but I have never used Samba and I dont have access to Samba but I require this data for a customer of mine.

Any help that could be provided would be greatly appreciated.

this might help you with some of the information you want to get.

pdbedit -L -- > will list all users

pdbedit -L -v --> will list all user with more info like full name, username and some other things

if you already know a specific username u want to look for then do something like this:

pdbedit -L -v username

for the last login as far as i know you have to look for that at the log for samba


I hope it helps
