How to join a Windows domain
Computer workstations rarely work in isolation, and sometimes it will be useful to join a Windows domain, for centralised authentication and file sharing and more. This article describes a procedure using Realmd.
Start by opening a Terminal session.
Run the following command to install realmd and join the domain.
apt-get install realmd realm join <domain name> --user <some account that can join>
Hopefully the above will just work, but here is an alternative approach that has been documented at ClearOS for joining the Samba domain.
