Add Azure CentOs server to Domain


Joining a Linux machine to a Windows domain is not straight forward.

You will need to connect to the server via an SSH app (f.eks Putty)

  1. Sign-in with the admin and password you created when deploying the server
  2. To do some of the commands you will need to be ROOT, but you don’t know this password, so run the following command: sudo -i
    enter the password for the adm account you created
  3. Install realm: yum install realm realmd -y
  4.  Add to domain: realm join yourdomain.com –user youradmin@yourdomain.com
     If you get error: realm: Couldn’t join realm: Necessary packages are not installed: oddjob, oddjob-mkhomedir, sssd, samba-common-tools, you need to install the missing packages.
    f.eks: yum install oddjob -y 

And now the machine is in the domain

 

 

 


Count directory Objects in Active Directory


Some times you need to find out how many directory Objects you have in your AD.
A quick way of getting this done is to use the following PowerShell​ string

​​Get-ADObject -Filter {name -like ‘*’} -SearchBase ‘CN=Schema,CN=Configuration,DC=sameie,DC=COM’ -ResultSetSize $null | Measure-Object >c:\tmp\object_dump.txt

This will dump the information into a easy to read text file

Now you know how many Objects you have.
