The same what I think - but in this case the existing
infrastructure had to be taken as-is, so we had to deal
with the AD problems and could not just throw away the
AD and replace it with an OpenLDAP server :-)
If this were a large company "with thousands of accounts" and willing to
pay for a solution that works, I think I might be looking at at least
one dedicated OpenLDAP machine pulling from AD and serving what's
necessary of LDAP to clients.
That might lead to a whole lot of schema hassle, but from what you
described originally I think maybe not.
Like Howard I was once a confirmed Microsoft user but encountered so
much that stuck in my throat on the way that I became a Unix person and
looked to giving up Microsoft. In this life I have to look at ways of
pulling information from the one and feeding it to the other.
