Description Amit Kumar 2018-08-14 05:51:23 UTC
samba_gpoupdate crashes if passed without argument.
Instead, it should display usage of the command.

# samba_gpoupdate 
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/sbin/samba_gpoupdate", line 176, in <module>
    apply_gp(lp, creds, test_ldb, logger, store, gp_extensions)
  File "/usr/sbin/samba_gpoupdate", line 62, in apply_gp
    dc_hostname = get_dc_hostname(creds, lp)
  File "/usr/sbin/samba_gpoupdate", line 49, in get_dc_hostname
samba.NTSTATUSError: (3221225524, 'The object name is not found.')

This was fixed in master around May 2018. Passing no arguments to samba-gpupdate now causes it to perform a machine group policy apply.
