Google Apps sync with Active Directory?
We have a Google Apps domain and a Active Directory domain
Been asked to look into making them link together in some way so a person can login to Active Directory, then when they visit Google they're automatically signed in.
Any ideas or has anyone done this? The ability to keep passwords in sync too would be incredibly useful!

We were looking into this over a year ago. We didn't get very far as SLT decided to stay with Exchange for staff and move to Office365 for students.
The only thing I do remember is that we spoke about creating an RODC [Read-Only Domain Controller]
Link: Read-Only Domain Controllers (RODC) Step-by-Step Guide
We planned to use this in conjunction with SLDAP [Secure Lightweight Directory Access Protocol]
As I said we didn't get far into the planning stages for this so I am not sure if this was the route to take. It was only the start of the conversation when working toward a solution. Maybe others can comment with more detail. In fact I would also be interested to hear if this was indeed the right approach [or if it makes any sense at all!]

There is a 'free way' that you can do - Achieving Single Sign-on with Google Apps and Shibboleth 2.0 - Google Apps APIs - Google Code
There are also a number of commercial products available, which are probably easier and better e.g. Hapara – Google Enterprise Solutions they also do a very nice looking product called teacher's dashboard, that lets the teacher see the email inboxes for their students and automatically be shared to documents relating to their classes. The SSO is 1USD per user per year.

Thanks, I'll look into that Hapara stuff as if it works as simple as it claims I'm sure the $1 per user hit can be taken by the powers that be!
