Hi Philippe,
if you are interested, and especially if you need to migrate only user
profiles from AD to ApacheDS, I'd rather suggest an alternative approach
based on Apache Syncope.

The idea could be to synchronize user profiles from AD to Syncope (which
features a full-Java agentless AD connector) and then propagate such
users to ApacheDS (via standard LDAPv3 connector).
You can see an example close to your use case at [1].

Post your questions / comments to in case.
