Description Yvan Masson 2016-03-10 14:00:17 UTC

If I am not wrong (i.e. if this has not been added since 4.1.17), setting an account expiry date with samba-tool can only be done using the number of days before the expiration:

# disable the account in one year
samba-tool user setexpiry <username> --days=365

It would be nice to be able to specify the date as an alternative (I do not know about the best date format to use however):

# disable the account the tenth of March, 2017:
samba-tool user setexpiry <username> --date=2017-03-10

Thanks for your time and work,
