This is a general directory synchronisation problem. It is not
specific to OpenLDAP or to RHEL so I suggest you search for 'directory
synchronisation' - you will find that there are a number of commercial
products and several open-source projects that do this in one way or
another.  Even if you start with a specific AD-LDAP sync product you
should expect to write some code to implement your policies on what gets
replicated in each direction.

See recent discussions on this list for information about capturing
AD passwords. You may need to install code on all the AD domain
