Deleting a Samba machine account

I’d give a try to luserdel :wink:

Let me know how it goes!


hmm, that does not work…
[root@pdc01 ~]# luserdel testmachine$ User testmachine$ does not exist.
But user is definetly there:

[root@pdc01 ~]# getent passwd | grep testmachine
testmachine$:*:5006:504:testmachine$ Samba machine account:/none:

does the ldap way work?

Bash requires $ escaped, so

luserdel testmachine\$


luserdel 'testmachine$'

did you try with the user “libuser”?
The password can be found in /var/lib/nethserver/secrets/libuser

(It ist the user i use to query the ldap at the moment, but I don’t know (and cannot test) if there is an ACL for write-access in the DIT)

Indeed the luserdel command comes with libuser :blush: and does the LDAP wodoo by itself!
