how to import windows users / passwords into openldap server - ldap migrate migration
I am looking for ideas for getting windows users into an ldap server. I am currently running a Linux server for my department and need to create an LDAP server which mirrors the username/password information for all of us as they are stored in the windows server here. I have the openldap server up and running on Ubuntu 8.04 and it works great; I now need to find some way to import user info into this from windows.
I've seen discussions of using ldifde.exe to export the AD users into an ldif file. Is this the simplest way to go about it?
Thanks in advance for any input you may have.
( Background, in case anyone is curious: Our Linux server is currently providing us with much needed services using apache, and apache is authenticating using LDAP to our windows server (Using our windows username / password is required functionality). This windows server has some problem which causes it to delay for inordinate amounts of time between authentication requests and responses. The situation is such that this problem will not be addressed by IT staff. However, I have control over the Linux server so I am looking to just mirror the windows server on an LDAP server of my own. I could get away with updating the passwords in the Linux server pretty infrequently, but I'm hoping I can just have a cron job updating the user info every few minutes. )
