We can live with that. We want to be able to disable an account in AD and have that flow out to our *nix servers. If we make the procedure to delete the password in AD, that should effectively disable the account in IPA as well.


I don't think PassSync will sync password deletion events.

You can do this with just PassSync on AD and without the rest of winsync.


and preferably account disabling synchronized.


You have to use winsync for that.


The rest is not absolutely necessary. I saw that part of the documentation, but did not fully understand it (in a hurry!). Now that I see it in a different light, it becomes much clearer. I will look into this.

    Thanks,

With 389 it is possible to disable sync of AD user creation to DS.
https://access.redhat.com/site/documentation/en-US/Red_Hat_Directory_Server/9.0/html/Administration_Guide/Using_Windows_Sync-Synchronizing_Users.html

12.4.4.2. Configuring User Sync in the Command Line

To disable user sync, set nsds7NewWinUserSyncEnabled: off

Then, you will add the ntUser objectclass to each IPA user you want to sync, and at the same time add the attribute ntUserDomainID: username (corresponds to the AD user samAccountName attribute). This will "link" the IPA user entry to the corresponding AD user entry.

You mention password sync and user sync - I'm not sure if you mean them separately, or if you are implying that they have to be used together - they do not. You should be able to install PassSync on your domain controllers _without configuring a winsync agreement in IPA_. PassSync should then just ignore password changes for users that it cannot find in IPA.

No. The only thing you can do is create a special container (cn=IPA users or ou=IPA users or something like that), move the users you want to sync into that container, and sync only that container.
