I know that the complete replication (include site-site and etc) is very
complex. Refer:

However, after windows 2003 promoted to new additional DC. I guess we
can do the manual replication (using RFC standard protocol) via Linux
ldaps->Windows AD ldaps, rsync Linux sysvol->Windows sysvol, and finally
Linux DNS to Windows DNS(Not AD integrated), is it possible (Of course
there is much more thing which is I can imagine now)?
