I don't think you can 'sync' info between openldap and AD, you could try
running openldap as a cache/proxy.
Could you expand on 'we have a very robust OpenLDAP setup that we want
to use for our default user administration', this is what AD is for, or
do you mean that you have various programs that auth to ldap ? if so
what are they ?
