SMB Client using Windows Check via various vulnerability scanners

Using smbclient how can one run various checks against domain policies such as:

1 - minimum password age of a domain account

2 - Maximum password age of a domain account

3 - Anything Else that would be helpful

Once I log into a domain:

PHP Code:
smbclient authentication in test.local network.

smbclient \\\\\\C\$ -U test


smbclient \\\\\\C\$ -U test -W testdomain 
How can I get better information on the local account or domain account?

As my job we use several vulnerabilities scanners and they are prone to false positives. When it comes to windows checks, I need to use smb-tools to verify the validity of the scanners and compare against the false positives. thanks
