Single User Interface to Join and Participate in Microsoft Active Directory Domains

Registered by Gerald Carter on 2007-10-22

Samba currently provides the technology to join systems to an Active Directory domain but leaves the full system configuration in the handles the host's admin. There should be one application (including a CLI and GUI interface) to join the host to the domain and manage all the necessary system configuration.

The is related to the "Network Authentication" blueprint at https://blueprints.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+spec/network-authentication. However, this specification is limited strictly to integration with AD.
