    I imagine I'm not the only person in the world who has a few Linux boxes at their work sites to run whatever minor services you can (for political reasons) and forget about them. What I'm looking into is using AD as a backend to authenticate myself and the other administrators.

    What sort of options do I have? Is there a preferred method? Looking at the obvious options available to me (LDAP, Kerberos and winbind), the most commonly suggested method is winbind.
