Not easy. AD is not exactly an LDAP compliant server, and it has 
thousands of specific attributes which are not present in ApacheDS or in 
OpenLDAP. Plus other schema elements are very specific to AD...

All that I can say is that you should first determinate what are the 
data you want to migrate,before considering moving away from AD (even if 
moving away from AD is the right thing to do...)
