Perhaps i don't get it, but having Trusted realm installed towards an Unix
KDC, i have something like this in my AD ldif output :

altSecurityIdentities: Kerberos:walter@USERS.ES.EFREI.FR

You should understand that USERS.ES.EFREI.FR is the Unix (hem GNU/Linux) KDC.

Having this, i am authenticating on the other KDC and get tickets from both
unix and AD realms without the need of the AD password for the user.

Don't we just need then to replicate _valid_ AD schema data into the LDAP
server of the AD DC to have the users working in the AD realm ?

I am also currently working on this and get stuck with the way to replicate
slapd data to AD server and/or the other way. Does someone did get this
working. It seems that University of Michigan has worked on this and setup a
modified slurpd to get this working. Any info about this ? Anyone from UMich
who could contribute ?
