Multiple solutions exist to integrate Linux with Microsoft Active Directory (AD) and Horizon 7 for Linux Desktop has no dependency on which solution is used.
The following solutions are known to work in a Horizon 7 for Linux desktop environment.
- OpenLDAP Server Pass-through Authentication
- System Security Services Daemon (SSSD) LDAP Authentication against the Microsoft Active Directory
- Winbind Domain Join
- PowerBroker Identity Services Open (PBISO) Authentication
- Samba Offline Domain Join
If you use the LDAP-based solutions, you must perform the configuration in a template virtual machine and no additional steps are required in the cloned virtual machines.
