Yeah this is totally OT.
SunONE has a sync tool for AD... there are some other meta directory
products out there. Last I looked, though, OpenLDAP's back-meta
wasn't up to this.
There's no point in religous wars about what's open and what's not.
The point behind LDAP is that the standard is open- Who cares what's
behind it... AD speaks LDAP, and AD makes an OK LDAP server for Unix
hosts. If you have to support a lot of windows clients, it's the best
choice right now, until someone comes up with a replacement.
