Really?  I'm under the impression this is a list devoted to OpenLDAP
issues in a working environment?  Ah well could be wrong...

Now this -is- helpful.  Well it's more information than I had...

http://www.labmice.net/ActiveDirectory/AD_ldap.htm is interesting for the
windows side incidentally...
Actually what I'm suspecting is that there's -no- helpful documentation for
how to get OpenLDAP working in an AD environment - other than authentication.

So I'll ignore it for now until it becomes an Issue.  (the openldap system
-is- being installed in a corporate network and one of the rules is that any
software present must have commercial support and a history of reliability)

although (and I realize this isn't related to openldap -servers-) it would
be nice to be able to find out what users present on an AD system so email
accounts can be created on a linux mailserver *g*...  but I have to admit
that I can probably solve this one using the OpenLDAP schema files

G'day, eh? :)
