RE: Active Directory passwords on OpenLdap
You basically can pull any attribute out of AD but the password. You need to buy a commercial product to do that. RIght now I am syncing accounts between AD and OpenLDAP using everything but the password.

Subject: Active Directory passwords on OpenLdap
I'm making a data loading program. It manages several sources and
integrates them into an OpenLdap structure. A part of this structure
stores users information for other programs, and a field of that
information is the user password. The data source of this password is
an Active Directory service. The idea is that users use this OpenLdap to
log in instead of AD.
My question is, can I read and write directly from AD to OpenLdap or do
I have to do some intermediate treatment? perhaps, for example, password
encodings are different and I have to decode and recode.
