You make this difficult!  :)  But after explaining what we are trying to 
accomplish here to our AD Architect, he offered some flexibility with the 
subcontainer option.  My users may have to live with two accounts in AD (one 
for everyday functions like email, the other for extra access like *nix), but 
that will allow our User Account Management team to enable, disable, and reset 
accounts from within one tool.  Actual server access will still be managed by 
our Unix team through IPA.
    Thanks,

    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.

    At the end of the day, all we really need is password

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,

    Ouch!   The AD admins have already expressed an unwillingness to move some 
users into a separate container.  And I don't want to have several thousand 
unnecessary entries in my IPA system.  It looks like password synchronization 
is not going to be an option.

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.





    Thanks,
    -Mark

    Is there a way to limit what user accounts are synchronized from Active 
Directory?  There are around 15,000 entries in our production AD system, but 
probably only about 300 of those need to have an account in the IPA system.  
Can we set an attribute in the user information in AD that would flag that this 
is a candidate for replication, and lack of that attribute would cause an 
account to be skipped?

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.
