Hi everyone in PM Land!

Is there a way to join a Peppermint 8 workstation to a Microsoft Windows Active Directory domain (2008 or 2012), just like I would with a Windows workstation?

Thanks.  I also finally stumbled on a suggestion from someone to use the "reamld" package, once you install it on your machine. From the reading I've done, it appears that realmd does practically all of the background file & settings changes automatically for you, once you initiate it with the couple of required command line commands.

Thanks again.

Not yet, but I will be shortly.  I'll let everyhone know the results.

Here's the main product page URL, with full explanations and guides:  https://www.freedesktop.org/software/realmd/

Basics:
  • Install "realmd" program from the Software Manager repository
  • Commands begin with "realm" in linux terminal (type just "realm" to get a listing of parameter options)
  • Information/developer website:  https://www.freedesktop.org/software/realmd/

Thanks for that, please do let us know how you get on with it :)

[EDIT]

Looks like realmd is in the default repos too :)

So should be installable with:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install realmd
