Due to time constraints we'll be using the ldap way, using the PowerShell
might be cleaner in the long run, but we don't have the time to explore
something this new/different.

I did found some people who were using SOAP with WS-man with for remote shell
execution but not enough details to be confident to be able to do it in time.

We once provisioned exchange mail groups via ldap to Active Directory, but
the advent of powershell and the microsoft cloud solutions made me realize
that you really wanted to be using powershell.

Not sure what the current state of rest to powershell bridges there are.
