With the ad_integration system role, you can automate a direct integration of a RHEL system with Active Directory (AD) by using Red Hat Ansible Automation Platform.

6.1. The ad_integration RHEL system role

Using the ad_integration system role, you can directly connect a RHEL system to Active Directory (AD).

The role uses the following components:

  • SSSD to interact with the central identity and authentication source
  • realmd to detect available AD domains and configure the underlying RHEL system services, in this case SSSD, to connect to the selected AD domain

The ad_integration role is for deployments using direct AD integration without an Identity Management (IdM) environment. For IdM environments, use the ansible-freeipa roles.
