I need some guidance with AD and OpenLDAP user database integration/synchronization. Here is what I am trying to do.
We have Full Linux database (Ubuntu 10.4) with users on OpenLDAP and using only opensource applications (POSTFIX, Fileserver, Print server, Apache, VPN etc.). Currently all windows client machines (Mostly 7 and Vista) are not on a Domain. We want to introduce Active directory because of its excellent features when it comes to handling users, plus with it can also handle update patches and we can have a variety of restrictions on users using group policies.
I have been digging on the web for a couple of days but have had no luck in finding something that can synchronize user information from AD to openldap so we can have one user password for all applications. We would like to have a centralized user database with one password for all applications.
I hope I was able to explain it correct on what I am looking for. Please let me know if you have implemented something similar to synchronize user password information between AD and OpenLDAP. I will appreciate any input.
