LDAP to populate SQL 2000/Active Directory

P: n/a
Hello all - I have a LDAP service running on a NT4 box (not a mbr of
my AD domain), I'd like to extract the users/attributes from that LDAP
service and populate my AD domain with those users and attributes (the
user accounts in LDAP will go into AD and the attributes for those
users will go into SQL Server 2000 database). Does anyone know of a
tool or how I can go about doing this? (the SQL server is a mbr of the
AD domain)

MS didn't have an LDAP group but if someone knows of a way for me to
extract the data from LDAP into a whatever format and do this sort of
mapping in AD - I'd appreciate the sharing of knowledge - Thanks in
advance.

SQL Server supports AD, but not "any old LDAP", such as you have. DB2 has
proper AD support and generic LDAP support, but you'll have to read the
manuals for both DB2 and your unspecified LDAP provider.

The simplest solution is for you to use an AD-based LDAP (you mention that
you do have an AD domain), rather than whatever NT4 LDAP you've located.
That MS doesn't have a group for your LDAP is not surprising - MS do not
have an NT4 LDAP product. They do have groups that handle AD integration
with other LDAP suppliers, but whether yours is discussed is hard to tell,
since you failed to identify it. MS also have a metadirectory product.
