Password Sync for Samba4

That this solution requires you to enable plaintext passwords:

samba-tool domain passwordsettings set --store-plaintext=on and check "Store password using reersible encryption" in user account.

Reads from your Samba4 AD and send user,email and password in script

If the script returns a good exit code, the password in plain text in samba4 is removed.

Python Dependencies

  • daemon
  • syslog
  • samba


  • mkdir /opt/syncpassword/

  • mkdir /etc/syncpassword

  • cd /opt/syncpassword/

  • git clone

  • cp -f syncho.conf /etc/syncpassword/

  • Configure synchro.conf with your samba settings

  • Start sync with "python start"

    Note :

    • The script gets the different arguments in this way: samaccountname password mail (password encode in base64)
    • replace_domain : This makes it possible to replace the domain of the email field with another domain (that of the domain field of the configuration file)
You can’t perform that action at this time.
