the search base is given as "ou=People,dc=example,dc=com" for password synchronization.

With ipa-server-2.1.3-9.el6, the search base should be something like "cn=users,cn=accounts,dc=example,dc=com".

The search base for the people subtree on the IPA server. The Active Directory server connects to the IPA server similar to an ldapsearch or replication operation, so it has to know where in the IPA subtree to look for user accounts. The user subtree is cn=users,cn=accounts,dc=example,dc=com.
