Recently I was working on a project to add linux machines ( Clients ) to a Windows Active Directory Server. When I started, I saw many blog post for that, some of them were not working & some were working to some extent. I tried a combination of them & succeeded in connecting a Linux client to Windows Domain ( AD ).
Following are the steps I followed which got the Linux Client into Windows domain:-
Before we start, we needed some basic info about the environment:-
|Required||# Active Directory Server with
the users & groups already setup|
# KDC server name (FQDN)
# Credentials of a User(administrator) who can join a client machine to AD
|Make sure the AD & your linux client have time sync. Means any noticeable time difference may cause login delays|
FOR CONFIGURING LINUX CLIENT TO JOIN ACTIVE DIRECTORY (AD):|
Please share your experience on the above.
