The Samba-Bugzilla – Bug 4098
"net user add" adds a disabled user account
Last modified: 2009-11-30 07:30:56 UTC
The bug with ID 502 still exists with samba 3.0.22 and 3.0.23c : while adding a user via rpc ("net rpc user add") on a Win2k SP4 DC (or on a Win2k3 SP1 DC), the user is created but is disabled.
*** Bug 502 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
When I add users to a Debain 3.1 Sarge (Samba 3.0.14a) PDC with these commands:
net rpc user add <username> -S <server hostname> -U <user to connect as>
net rpc password <username> <password> -U <user to connect as>
the account is disabled.
'pdbedit -c -u <username>' does not say the account is disabled. 'smbpasswd -e <username> -U winadmin' enables it.

Quick hack to create accounts which aren't disabled
I don't read C very well but from the looks of it are you saying that the account is disabled if its created without a password and the password is created seperately?
I create the account and set the password with a second command because I couldn't get the command to work when all done together.
This is still an issue in Samba 3.4. Raising version number.

Added this comment to the wrong bug report. Sorry!
Just tried to reproduce with Samba 3.4.3 and it's no longer an issue.
Closing out bug report.
Thanks for reporting!
