Using Active Directory Authentication for SQL Server on Linux

Jamie Wick takes us through a lengthy process:

SQL Server has been supported on several Linux distributions for a couple of years now. For some people, the primary stumbling block to implementing SQL Server on Linux is the need to retain Active Directory (ie Windows-based) authentication for their database users and applications. Below we’ll go over how to join a Linux server (Ubuntu release 20.04) with SQL Server 2019 to an Active Directory domain, and then configure SQL Server to allow Windows-based logins.

There are quite a few steps here and I appreciate Jamie providing us an image-filled, step-by-step process.
