I managed to add the zentyal server as an additional server to my server 2008 AD in file sharing and users / groups replicate ok although frustratingly it doesn't replicate from any other OU apart from the Users container which is a serious issue for me.
I have users defined under (for example) a 'MyUsers' OU and then OU's underneath for Departments so I can apply Group Policies, Security Groups are also defined in another OU for ease of adminstration.
I can't see how I'm going to migrate from the old AD Sync type method ( I would like to :) ) where all my users and groups are replicated from all containers and OU's from the top of the AD Tree.
Any suggestions ?

I would help if I could get my zentyal box to join my domain at all. Did you have issues with that?

I finally got zentyal joined to my domain, but am having the same issue as you now. Users will only sync that are in the Users OU. Have you found a solution to this?

Update to zentyal-samba 3.0.2 that fixes this issue.

That has resolved that issue but there is a bigger issue at hand now. Will post as new.
