Installation of Identity Management for Unix, setup of testing Active Directory users and groups and configuration of Unix attributes tab.

Installation of Identity Management for Unix formerly called Windows Services for Unix (SFU). We will use Windows PowerShell for Identity Management for Unix installation. To install Identity Management for Unix, please use below commands:

Install administration tools for Identity Management for UNIX:
dism.exe /online /enable-feature /featurename:adminui /all

Install Server for NIS:
dism.exe /online /enable-feature /featurename:nis /all

Install Password Synchronization:
dism.exe /online /enable-feature /featurename:psync /all

Once Identity Management for Unix will be installed we will create Active Directory users and groups and then we will fill UNIX Attributes tab in users/groups properties. UNIX Attributes tab will be available after Identity Management for Unix installation – it will not be available before Identity Management for Unix will be installed.

Configuring (filling) UNIX Attributes tab is important in case if we will use winbind method idmap=ad or sssd when ldap_id_mapping is set to false (ldap_id_mapping = False) => in that scenario winbind/sssd will query for users UID/GID/home directory and login shell (or groups gid in case of groups) to Active Directory domain controller.
