I've been looking around the web trying to find a way to authenticate users on Linux with a Domain User account on a Windows 2012R2 Server. The way I've done this in the past is using the "Identity Management for Unix" role on the server to get the Posix attributes setup. Microsoft, however, has "deprecated" this feature on 2012R2 Server.
Does anyone know of another way to authenticate (centralized) Linux accounts without having that Posix attributes in AD on the Windows server? I'm trying to follow the hesling pdf and the RedHat guide for integrating AD with Linux, but both articles, published last year. apparently use the IMU role on AD.
I tried Centrify Express this week, but unless I was missing something, I was not able to manage any of the Posix attributes for the Linux accounts in AD with it.
