The posixUser-attributes are still empty. How do you populate those
attributes in an effective way?
You can't, really, and even if you did, they would not be synced.
Windows Sync ignores them.
If I have an empty directory, and the users alredy exists in AD I
been thinking of this manual approach:
1. Perform a full re-sync from AD.
2. Export all the users in directory server in a LDIF-file and with scripts
populate the needed attributes like uid, shell, home, etc.
3. Write the changes back in directory server.
For new users, if not too many, perform the needed changes manually.
What do you think? Is it possible to do this automatically with Windows
Sync or do I have to use approaches like I described?
That should work. But note that posix attributes will not sync to AD.
And even if you did manage to find a posix schema that worked with AD,
and added the posix schema on the AD side, those attributes would not be
synced to Fedora DS.
