Description Brandon 2012-06-15 10:40:20 EDT
I am a CSE Lab assisitant at my Univeristy (our dept is the only dpt with a windows server).

I was trying to add machines to the domain and found it easier to install Ubuntu and add it to the domain because of Likewise-open and likewise-open-gui.

I would have liked to add fedora machines; however, it is is very time consuming not having likewise-open to add it.

We're working on this in a different way for Fedora 18, see:

Yes, the good news is its going to be easy to enroll a machine in Active Directory.

Some progress with screenshots: http://stef.thewalter.net/2012/06/kerberos-and-active-directory-logins.html

FWIW, the underlying 'realmd' component which is used to enroll a machine in a domain can have multiple backends which actually do the dirty work. For example Winbind or SSSD. So in theory, if they like, Likewise could write a backend so that the anything using realmd would use the Likewise implementation.
