Will there be a Windows Integration Guide for RHEL 8?

Latest response

RHEL 7 Windows Integration Guide:

I don't see this for RHEL 8. Is it still being written?


I posted this in part due to the fact that we're encountering a lot of RHEL 8-specific gremlins using 'adcli' against AD to join hosts. Things we don't see problems with on RHEL 7. I want to RTFM prior to submitting support requests though.

Would love to hear other folk's initial experiences integrating with AD on RHEL 8.

Has this above question been answered?

As the LDAP integration changed substantially as of RHEL 8 i expect some things to change and that guide would possibly help a lot ;-)

The LDAP integration is not described in the RHEL 8 documentation yet.

According to my knowledge, some parts of the Windows Integration Guide are included in the RHEL 8 documentation and these parts are up-to-date:

Planning part:

  • Planning integration with AD: https://access.redhat.com/documentation/en-us/red_hat_enterprise_linux/8/html/planning_identity_management/planning-integration-with-ad_planning-dns-and-host-names

  • Planning a cross-forest trust between IdM and AD: https://access.redhat.com/documentation/en-us/red_hat_enterprise_linux/8/html/planning_identity_management/planning-a-cross-forest-trust-between-idm-and-ad_planning-dns-and-host-names

Installation part:

  • Integrating IdM and AD: https://access.redhat.com/documentation/en-us/red_hat_enterprise_linux/8/html/installing_identity_management/integrating-idm-and-ad

Direct integration is not documented yet in the RHEL 8 documentation.

Please forgive me as I am new to this discussion and also to Red Hat (in the formal sense); never used to bother with an account. Boy was I stupid. I'm grateful that all this info is available. I had a reasonably simple time (once I followed directions) connecting one of my RHEL 7 servers to AD. I was hoping that it would be similar for RHEL 8; however, I can't seem to locate any specifics (i.e. Windows Integration Guide). That guide was a Godsend!! Where is Red Hat's status now regarding a RHEL 8 sequel for this information? Is there anything that I can do to help? I wanted to see if there has been an update as I'd rather not try to perform this task without a similar set of guidelines. It feels as if I'm going against canon or something. If we're not there yet, can anyone provide a good reference (whether inside the RHEL portal or not) that can aid me in connecting RHEL 8 servers to Active Directory? I thank you in advance for your guidance.
