Master Article - Integrate RHEL with Windows Active Directory

Solution In Progress - Updated -


  • I want to use Active Directory users on a Red Hat Enterprise Linux system.
  • We can join a Windows Active Directory on three different ways, i.e: using adcli, using net, using realm etc.
  • As we are working on our new SOE image and VM deployment process, we would like to know what is the "standard" way for RHEL to join to a Windows Active Directory by using command line tools?


  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6
  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7
  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8
  • Active Directory
