KACE Product Support Question
Linux with AD & K1000
A couple of users are now using Linux machines and I was wondering is there anyway of adding these machines to Active Directory? And if so, even though very unlikely, can I roll out the K1000 agent via group policy?
I have very little linux knowledge and I’m still learning. :)

Yes, you can do it without problems.
The easiest way is to use winbind on the linux side:
Or you can configure PAM to use LDAP (but this is a pain in the ass, trust me ...)
I don't think you can use a GPO to roll out the agent.
You can use provisioning from the KACE to do this or if you have only a few systems roll them out by hand.
Found this piece of software for a GPO for Linux:
Depending on which Linux you are using we may have many other ways.
Usually the function is vice versa, move Windows boxes into a Linux-network, this is where I have much more experience, unfortunately
