Windows Authentication On Linux

Ryan Adams shows us how to get Active Directory authentication on Linux using Samba and PAM:

Back to our question at hand.  Since the preview just got released I have not had a chance to test this out with SQL Server.  However, you can use Active Directory accounts with Linux and Unix by using Samba and PAM.  I see no reason why this implementation would not also work with SQL Server on Linux, but again I have not yet had a chance to test this out.  Since I already have some written installation instructions, that’s what I am providing here.

Chrissy LeMaire, in the comments, shows how to do it in OpenSUSE.  She also has a brand new blog post on the topic.
