Windows containers AD integration


(Hicklin) #1

I’m sure this may turn out to be a simple one, but i am reaching out to the forum for some information. i am trying to figure out if a docker image / container can be joined to a domain and also can a GPO be applied.

Good day hicklin, did you solve the problem on how container can join the domain.
I am new to docker container and need help, can you please let me know how i can do that. thanks

It’s impossible for container itself to join AD or have GPO applied to it. You can use services inside container though to access resources as well as use AD authentication inside container. Details are available here https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/virtualization/windowscontainers/manage-containers/manage-serviceaccounts
