Proxy to Active Directory

Hi Everyone,


Like many organizations, we have two authentication systems here. I am trying to figure out a way of synchronizing LDAP passwords with AD passwords; or proxying the requests to AD. Management wants to keep LDAP intact, while enjoying the flexibility of single password.



I have unsuccessfully tried to use proxy functionally of LDAP to get user information from AD. First of all, AD needs a user name and password to retrieve information. Is there a way of specifying username/password? Even the following ldapsearch FAILS on openldap server, but the same query works fine for AD server.



ldapsearch -LLL -x -h localhost -b 'cn=users,dc=internal,dc=phg,dc=com,dc=au' -D "ldapauth@internal.phg.com.au" -W –x

ldapsearch -LLL -x -h localhost -b 'dc=internal,dc=phg,dc=com,dc=au' -D "CN=Ldap Authentication,OU=Linux,OU=InformationTechnology,OU=Portland House,OU=Sites,DC=internal,DC=phg,DC=com,DC=au" -W –x




Here is the relevant sladp.conf snippet.


database        ldap

suffix          "cn=users,dc=internal,dc=phg,dc=com,dc=au"



uri             "ldap://"

chase-referrals yes



Any help is appreciated. Thank you very much.
