I am able to get several of my RedHat machines to join my Windows Server 2008 Active Directory and am able to log into them with my registered users in the domain. However, for some reason, they aren't listed under Server Manager -> Roles -> Active Directory Domain Services -> Active Directory Users and Computers > domain name > Computers. Only the Windows computers are listed there. Is this normal? Is there a procedure to get it listed there?

How are you joining them to the domain? – EEAA Sep 21 '11 at 1:00
I configured them in System -> Administration -> Authentication and have my Windows Server as a NTP Server. – O_O Sep 21 '11 at 1:07

I'm not sure on the specifics of the Redhat GUI means of configuring this, but my hunch is that it's set up to only use LDAP instead of using LDAP and Kerberos. In order to get the Computer objects to show up in ADUC, you need to do a proper AD join using Samba and the net ads join command.
