Although I do think you could do this, the task of creating every objectClass from AD in OpeLDAP would be large and the overall outcome may not allow you to accomplish the desired results.

A quick glance at our 2003 Windows server schema reveals more than 1,000 attributes and 191 ObjectClass entries.
Some of the attributes and objectClasses undoubtedly already exist within OpenLDAP and so those would need to be modified.

The schema for AD servers can be found by querying
CN=Schema,CN=Configuration,DC=mad,DC=willeke,DC=com

For OpenLDAP it is (Pretty Sure)
cn=schema

Even if you went through all of this, the matchigRules, supportedControls, supportedSASLMechisims and supportedExtensions would still be different and these can not be changed from one LDAP vendor to another as they are part of the LDAP server.

These missing components would drastically change operation of any Domain you would try to implement on OpenLDAP.

Perhaps, if you describe why you would want to do such a task, we could help find a workable solution.
