I am sure that I have already told you this, you would be better off 
adding the required schemas to AD, but to do this you need to upgrade.

It looks like your system started out using the Ebox OS, which morphed 
into Zentyal and this OS is still in existence, but trying to get your 
OS up to the latest Zentyal may not be possible, if it is possible, then 
it is going to take a lot of work, more than it is worth.

It will probably be easier to start again with a new domain and add the 
required schemas, just remind us what you use ldap for.
