I've been wondering the same (on CentOS, though which distro probably 
doesn't really matter).

We're Linux only here, which probably simplifies things a bit, but so 
far I've been using a GUI tool named "luma" to administer the accounts 
on the LDAP server.  Seems to work decently in administering records of 
objectClass "posixAccount", though I'm not entirely satisfied with it. 
So if you find something better, please post back here.
