Chapter 3. Using realmd to Connect to an Active Directory Domain
realmdsystem provides a clear and simple way to discover and join identity domains to achieve direct domain integration. It configures underlying Linux system services, such as SSSD or Winbind, to connect to the domain.
realmdsystem simplifies that configuration. It can run a discovery search to identify available AD and Identity Management domains and then join the system to the domain, as well as set up the required client services used to connect to the given identity domain and manage user access. Additionally, because SSSD as an underlying service supports multiple domains,
realmdcan discover and support multiple domains as well.
3.1. Supported Domain Types and Clients
realmdsystem supports the following domain types:
- Microsoft Active Directory
- Red Hat Enterprise Linux Identity Management
- SSSD for both Red Hat Enterprise Linux Identity Management and Microsoft Active Directory
- Winbind for Microsoft Active Directory
