RE: Syncrepl for AD replication

Thanks all for the responses especially Jonathan for that useful link to LSC. I think replication is the wrong word for my requirements, my apologies. All I need to pull from AD to LDAP are unique user-ids such that when a user gets created in AD, it's userid should get populated in LDAP and when the user gets deleted from AD, again, the userid should get deleted from LDAP. So I just need to sync cn,sn, and the sAMAccountName attributes from AD to LDAP. The "person" object would have more attributes like public certificates or keys that would be populated later by the user. And, I am not looking at AD to do either authentication or pull passwords to LDAP.

Indeed. May I suggest you take a look at Ldap Synchronization Connector 
(LSC), which can easily be used to synchronize some attributes to/from AD.

This page lists some tips when trying to read/synchronize with Active 
Directory (they are general tips, not LSC-specific):

Hope this helps,
