Horizon Agent uses the existing Microsoft Active Directory (AD) infrastructure for user authentication and management. You can integrate your Linux virtual machines with Active Directory so that users can log in to a Linux desktop using their Active Directory user account. You can also configure features for user authentication, such as single sign-on (SSO), smart card redirection, and True SSO.

Note: Horizon Agent expects the Linux desktop and the client user to reside in the same Active Directory domain. If the desktop and user reside in different domains, Horizon Agent might misidentify the desktop domain as being the user domain.
