Thanks for the responses.

I dont know why I didnt find that manual when I was googling. Perhaps because it is for the RH DS and I was searching 389 (I realize they are quite similar)

As to the FreeIPA, I may investigate this in the future but the issue I have here is that I have a DS in service already so its not really a fair solution to switch products.

Does FreeIPA provide Active Directory Sync.

Yes, although freeipa is slightly different:
1) it does not do group sync
2) it only syncs adds from AD -> DS - it does not sync adds from DS -> AD
3) it will sync account disable/enable

Thanks again for the replies

IMHO the FreeIPA project could help you a lot. It contains pre-baked solutions for common problems like central management of sudoers and ssh authorized_keys, including management utilities (with CLI, WebUI, XML RPC, JSON RPC).

Homepage: http://freeipa.org/
Users list: http://www.redhat.com/mailman/listinfo/freeipa-users

The home page is undergoing a major redesign at the moment, because it is a bit confusing to newcomers. I would recommend you to ask freeipa-users list if you can't find what you are looking for.

And BTW - FreeIPA is based on 389 DS.

I'm sorry for the advertisement.

assuming that it took the ldif fine.

How do I go about using the new schema. I have googled around quite a bit,

fully intend on publishing a how-to on this (as I do for most things over
