I have been asked by my manager to research software solutions to sync user account info and passwords with eDirectory 8.7 while not breaking the bank at the same time. Also the soluton must support kerberos

I have never done anything like this before so any and all suggestions are welcome!!

BTW, how long would something like this take to setup our enviroment contains 400 user accounts in AD.

I'm confused everything I'm reading about FIM 2012 talks about syncing user account passwords between AD and eDirectory but can it also sync user attribute info as well like: localtion, address, department etc..

Thanks for the link from what I am reading NETIQ's IDM 4.0.1 should be able to sync user attributes and passwords between AD and eDirectory. Has anyone setup this up before? Or is using it currently?
