How does one tie Keystone into Active Directory LDAP?

Hello. I'm working on deploying a small test instance of Icehouse and find the documentation for tying into Active Directory to be a bit sparse. (I'm used to setting up AD integration using group mapping on apps like Splunk where there is a nice simple web wizard...)

I have three main questions:

  • Can we use AD groups rather than OUs to hold users, tenants etc? The docs only discuss OUs:
  • Can we use a mix of local accounts (eg: keystonerc 'admin') and LDAP once the LDAP Identity driver is configured? Every time I try to enable the driver now my 'admin' account stops working.
  • Could we use LDAP just for authenticating AD users and use the sql driver for all tenant, role, etc assignments?

Please read the FAQ before posting: for this site one question at the time is encouraged. I think you can rephrase your question like "is it possible to mix SQL and LDAP auth backends" so that it is "one" question and your 3 points are an explanation.
