I am newbee to this community and want to know how I can integrate an

done with a technical documentation.

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.

If you choose this approach, you may want to look at Ldap Synchronization Connector (LSC) which is designed for this purpose, and can easily be set up to synchronize AD and OpenLDAP. See http://lsc-project.org/wiki/documentation/tutorials/openldaptoactivedirectory
