Hi Bill, thank you *very* much for your prompt reply.
One question (actually 2) though before I ask for the trouble of
providing an example.... do you get the clear text passwd on the
accesslog? is the the log an LDIF format? It's not that I really need
clear text, but I need to compute the corresponding password hashes
for MS-AD. are you guys able to change the password fields as well? or
are you just copying the hashes from one to the other? how does this
work with the accesslog method?

Again many thanks because I really feel that this could be a practical
KISS way of integrating this.
