I am looking into a method of automating POSTFIX attributes being added to a

of the POSIX fields which do not change often (home dir, user shell ect.)?
No, not that I know of, unless 3rd party products like Directory
Administrator or GQ can do this. You would have to write a post-op add
to have this
done automatically when the new entries are added.
I am hoping that I do not have to use a third party application or
scripts to accomplish this. It would nice if I can continue to use the servers
The console can't do this either, but then it's a lot more work to have
to edit each person manually with the GUI after they have been copied
over from AD.
On the subject of having to use a alternate method to control POSIX
if it turns out that I won’t be able to use a automated method within the FDS’s
console, I am thinking of pulling the server away from the console. If the
choice is to pull the console functionality out of my FDS installation, how will
that affect my ability to perform the replication functions needed for account
and password synchronization?
I'm not sure what you mean here. Why would not having an automated
method of filling in POSIX information mean you would have to get rid of
the console altogether? The console has many, many other features other
than just editing user/group information.
Every feature of the server can be administered in 3 ways: Using the
console; using LDAP commands (from a script or using ldapmodify);
shutting down the server and editing config/dse.ldif.
