I am trying to find a way of exporting most information from the GAL

It seems that OpenLDAP might do what I want, however I'm relatively new
to using LDAP, so I was wondering if someone could give me a few
pointers on how to do this.
It sounds like I need to use a slapd as a Proxy Cache Engine, so I can
cache an AD query (preferably the equivalent of the Exchange GAL) into
A reverse caching proxy stores the data in a transient cache. This might
not be what you want when saying "exporting most information" from GAL.
People can then use the OpenLDAP server as a Directory source in
without needing to log in to anything.
If that's your main goal you can use a reverse proxy. If you want to use
the proxycache overlay slapo-pcache is the 2nd question.
See man slapd-ldap.5 for back-ldap and look at configuration directives
starting with "idassert".
