Re: OpenLDAP and AD integration


I didn't mean "urgent" and "expecting a reply" as a demanding request. However I would like a voluntary reply at the earliest so that I can go ahead with my work. Sorry for a demanding request, however would like your support and reply in current and future issues.

Thanks and Regards,
Santosh Balan

This is not possible just by OpenLDAP and AD server configuration. You
need a custom sync process for that. There might be already some
implementations available but most times they won't fit exactly your
requirements. So I'd recommend to write your own custom script to do it.

Authenticated at which client component?

E.g. it does not make sense to authenticate the user during Windows
logon directly against the OpenLDAP user account since there's a bit
more done during a Windows domain logon.

Well, "urgent" and "expecting a reply" is a little bit demanding on a
mailing list where volunteers are answering in their spare time. You
might wanna hire a consultancy company: http://www.openldap.org/support/
