i am ok to compile it myself, looking for source code. I hope that way i will 
be able to avoid messing 
around with the ldap tree. Any help/documentation is appreciated.

The only how-to I'm aware of is: 

If you insist on Ubuntu you need to get ipasam somewhere, most likely to 
compile it yourself. 

Let us know if you are going to compile it, we can provide you some guidance. 

See the thread 'IPA - Samba / Redmine / Disable Kerberos?'.
