Hi,

Yes.....In hindsight its pretty obvious when you have a new product connecting 
to another complex product in a "foreign way" in a enterprise / complex 
environment that some shake-out is going to happen.  I guess I didnt know what 
I didnt know and I got accelerated in deploying IPA faster and further than I'd 
said was what I wanted....hence some Dragons...(quite like that)....

The only issue Ive had really is the speed of solving, not the solving....but 
RH support has definitely stepped up to the plate and is now significantly 
better, huge learning curve.

Hopefully my successors will have that benefit.

Steven, let me put this way: you were unlucky to be the first to produce
the configuration we never seen before (AD sync is a part of DS for
ages). Things evolve on the AD side and we are not the first to know or
experience new changes and configurations that AD adds. AD in fact big
and complex. I am sorry about what you have been through but we
unfortunately did not anticipate the scenarios and configuration that
you presented. For us they were the corner cases at the moment. Now they
are not since you hit them, we learned the details of those issues and
addressed them.
