Active Directory / OID

        I have been "volunteered" to help in an AD to OID link project. We are going to use OID as a broker between Oracle databases and our company Active Directory, so we will effectively only be extracting the names of the users from AD and putting them into OID, so they can be used to verify users on the various DBs. I have managed to make sense of most of it. I understand the process of setting up the sync between AD and OID, the mapping filters, etc., but I am little stuck on how I load the initial LDIF extracted data, taken from AD, into the OID repository, before you start the sync process off.

        Does anyone have experience of a similar sort of project and if so would you have any useful references for information, you would be willing to share?
