Description Marc Muehlfeld 2017-09-29 10:57:28 UTC
Problem description:
If you run an smbcacls command without specifying the password in the -U parameter, the command fails and prints:
> cli_full_connection failed! (NT_STATUS_LOGON_FAILURE)
instead of asking for the password such as other tool do (e. g. "net" or "samba-tool").

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Steps to reproduce:
1. Run:
   # smbcacls //server/share / -Uadministrator
   cli_full_connection failed! (NT_STATUS_LOGON_FAILURE)

Further details:
* The command works if you add the password to the -U parameter. For example:
  # smbcacls //server/share / -Uadministrator%password
  But this should not be the recommended way.
* Connections also work if you have a valid Kerberos ticket and pass the
  -k option to the command

Verified. Smbcacls now prompts user for password if no password was used.
