You can specify a --winsubtree, provided all the users you want are in that, I 
think that will work.

For filters, Ive suggested that, we have so much garbage in our AD that its 
cluttering IPA badly.  eg we have hundred templates, so I'd like to block those 
from being transferred.

Subject: [Freeipa-users] RHEL6 IPA and Active Directory synchronisation and     
Solaris RBAC


We are investigating whether IPA is an acceptable solution for our
environment. One of the aspects that is not clear (from reading the
documentation and testing it without AD) is whether the synchronization
with AD can be limited to a subset.

Since we would like to only synchronize certain user-accounts (conforming
to a specific format) from AD unidirectionally, and we also want to manage
functional/technical accounts on IPA, we need to make sure that we:

  - can filter the stuff we pull from AD
  - can avoid the synchronisation to remove other accounts managed in IPA

Can someone confirm that this is possible ? Is there any indepth
information on how this AD sycnhronization works (preferably about RHEL6
IPA) ?

Also since we also require compatibility with Solaris, and roles (RBAC) is
currently used on Solaris, does IPA support RBAC on Solaris ? (We noticed
that RBAC mentioned in the IPA web interface only relates to IPA
