What to do about windows sync when AD entries move out of scope

Let's say you have a windows sync agreement
AD: cn=Users,dc=example,dc=com
DS: ou=People,dc=example,dc=com

Let's say you also have another user container in AD:
cn=OtherUsers,dc=example,dc=com

Let's say you have a user in AD in cn=Users in sync with a user in DS
in ou=People.


What should happen if you move the user in AD from cn=Users to
cn=OtherUsers? Should DS "disconnect" the entry (i.e. remote the
ntuser attributes) so the entry is no longer in sync? Should winsync
do something else?
Is it feasible to "mark" the entry as moved, or placed it in some kind
of list, and then use a config option on whether to keep it in sync or not?


Conversely, what should happen if a user is moved from cn=OtherUsers
to cn=Users? Should DS treat it as adding a new user or "connect" an
existing user if the userids match?

Depending if it is "marked" or not, we would know what to do with it.

When we receive the AD entry in a search request, we will know if there
is a DS entry with the same userid, and whether or not the DS entry is
in sync (i.e. has the ntuser attributes).


Not sure what you mean by "mark" - maybe add some sort of attribute to
the DS entry that says "hey, this entry has the same userid as an entry
in AD but the AD entry is out of scope of the winsync agreement and/or
the DS entry is not set up to be a winsync entry"?




Conversely, what should happen if a user is moved from cn=OtherUsers
to cn=Users? Should DS treat it as adding a new user or "connect" an
existing user if the userids match?
