we use a lot of Linux-Servers with active-directory membership for user-authentication. This are made with the likewise-open packet.
We tested the beta-Version of ubuntu Server 14.04 LTS. Everything works fine after one minute
(install, domain-join, import registry, edit sudoers, done). Now, from beta to production-release likewise-open is removed from repository.
Is there any equivalent easy way for AD-domain-join and (AD-)group-based login-management (without manually installing and editing config-files for samba, winbind, nsswitch, pam etc….?
thanks a lot
Using Powerbroker instead of likewise

2- run it ,
run by typing it and hitting enter key
3- join by one of the below commands
4- Also, note that you might need to make one minor change to a config file as noted here. Namely, in the file
/etc/pam.d/common-session, change the line that reads:
5- run this command to config, like lwconfig in likewise (run from home folder), use caret
^for spaces in group names
6- if you want a username to be sudoer do as follows
after root line add the line below
