The Windbind domain join solution, a Kerberos-based authentication solution, is another method of authenticating with Active Directory.
Use the following high-level steps to set up the Windbing domain join solution.
- Install the winbind, samba, and Kerberos packages on the Linux desktop.
- Join the Linux desktop to the Microsoft Active Directory.
What to do next
If you use the Winbind Domain Join solution or other Keberos authentication-based solution, join the template virtual machine to the Active Directory, and re-join the cloned virtual machine to the Active Directory. For example, use the following command:
sudo /usr/bin/net ads join -U <domain_user>%<domain_password>
Use the following options to run the domain re-join command on a cloned virtual machine for the Winbind solution:
Remote connect such as SSH or vSphere PowerCLI to each virtual machine and run the command. For more information on scripts, see Bulk Deployment of Horizon 7 for Manual Desktop Pools.
Include the command to a shell script and set the script path to the Horizon agent RunOnceScript option in the /etc/vmware/viewagent-custom.conf file. For more information, see Setting Options in Configuration Files on a Linux Desktop.
