First I have spent lots of time on this and looked at the mailing list
and the python site and I am still not clear on how to do this so I am
posting this message.
I am trying to write a python script to change or add a users samba
this can be done by running "smbpasswd -a -s"
-s This option causes smbpasswd to be silent (i.e. not
issue prompts) and to read it's old and new passwords
from standard input, rather than from /dev/tty (like
the passwd(1) program does). This option is to aid
people writing scripts to drive smbpasswd
This python code seems to work great it does indeed change the samba
password or add the user if the user does not exist.
#run smbpasswd to add user to samba
How do I check this code to make sure that there was no error when
say I mistype
I the program still completes and produces no errors. I tryed
enclosing the code
in a try: and except: block but that did not work
I also tried getting the file descriptor from the file objects
using fileno() and checking the status of the file descriptor with
fstat() but that always returned true that file descriptor always gets
any ideas on how to error check popen3?
Thank you for any help or hints you can give me
please respond to me as I am not subscribed to the list.
