I have quite a few Ubuntu Server 17.04 hosts that must be joined to an existing Windows AD domain (Windows Server 2016). I've never done it before, but I'm aware about several ways to achieve this, such as: Likewise, Centrify, SSSD and Winbind.
Could you share your general experience and tell how reliable, easy to configure / maintain are each of these solutions?
Would be also great if you can share any links to the up-to-date articles/manuals that cover this topic as I can only find a couple of 3 to 5-year-old ones and they don't really work as expected.
Thank you so much for assistance!
