Univention Domain Join

This is an assistant for joining Ubuntu computers into Univention Corporate Server (UCS) domains. It will perform the following steps for you:

  • Create an LDAP object for your Ubuntu computer on UCS
  • Configure DNS
  • Configure Kerberos
  • Configure the login manager, if necessary
  • Configure PAM
  • Configure SSSD

Univention Domain Join supports the following Linux distributions:

  • Ubuntu 18.04 LTS („Bionic Beaver“)
  • Linux Mint („Tara“)
  • Ubuntu 17.10 („Artful Aardvark“)
  • Ubuntu 16.04 LTS („Xenial Xerus“)
  • Ubuntu 14.04 LTS („Trusty Tahr“)

The actual source code for the different Ubuntu releases can be found in the corresponding git branches:

  • ubuntu18.04 (Ubuntu and Linux Mint)
  • ubuntu17.10
  • ubuntu16.04
  • ubuntu14.04

Univention Domain Join supports the Gnome and Unity desktop environments. The configuration of the login manager of other desktop environments may not work, but can be skipped using the --skip-login-manager parameter of the univention-domain-join-cli tool.
