HowTo join openSUSE Tumbleweed Desktop to NethServer-7 Active Directory
Please feel free to give me a feedback to be able to correct my howto. I mean technical and formulation (I am not a nativ speaker).
This is based upon limited testing, and a small number of users. Both, Client and Server, were installed as VPS under Proxmox PVE.
Installed NethServer 7.4 Server and updated from command line. Active Directory has been configured and the domain-name example.org was given.
Installed openSUSE Tumbleweed (openSUSE-Tumbleweed-DVD-x86_64-Snapshot20171204-Media.iso), with standard gnome desktop and one local user who has local admin rights. DHCP-Client was activ to get an IP from the NethServer who is acting as DHCP-and AD-Server. It is important that the openSUSE Client can resolv DNS correctly.
