DESCRIPTION

       domainjoin-cli is the command-line version of the Likewise AD domain join tool. In a basic
       invocation, domainjoin-cli will join the current machine into an AD domain, enable
       authentication of AD users, and enable group policy if it is available.

       For systems with sensitive configurations, domainjoin-cli offers fine-grained control over
       modifications to system configuration files that are typically required during a join,
       such as editing /etc/nsswitch.conf or the system PAM setup.

USAGE

   Commands
       domainjoin-cli supports the following major modes of operation:

       join
           Joins the machine to the AD domain domain and configures AD authentication and group
           policy (where applicable). This operation requires valid AD credentials for domain to
           be specified as username and password. If password is not specified on the command
           line, domainjoin-cli will prompt you for it.

           domainjoin-cli supports joining the machine to a specific OU (Organizational Unit)
           with --ou organizational_unit.

       leave
           Leaves the currently-joined AD domain and deconfigures AD authentication and group
           policy (where applicable).

           In order to actually disable the machine account in AD, either administrative
           credentials for domain or the same credentials originally used to join the machine
           must be specified as username and password. If password is not specified on the
           command line, domainjoin-cli will prompt you for it.

           If no credentials are specified, the machine will no longer behave as a member of
           domain but its machine account will remain enabled in AD.

       query
           Displays information about the currently-joined AD domain and OU.

       fixfqdn
           Makes local configuration modifications necessary to ensure that the fully-qualified
           domain name of the machine is forward- and backward-resolvable. This can work around
           domain join issues on networks with sub-optimal DNS setups.

       setname
           Changes the hostname of this machine to name. As it is necessary to have a unique,
           non-generic name before joining AD, this operation is provided as a convenient way to
           quickly rename this computer before performing a join.

   Common options
       --log filename
           Log details about the operation to file. If file is ".", logging is directed to the
           console.

       --loglevel <error | warning | info | verbose >
           Specifies the level of logging information which should be written to the log file.

       --help
           Displays brief usage and help information. No operation is performed.

   Join and leave options
       --ou organizational_unit
           Joins the machine to the OU organizational_unit instead of the default "Computers" OU.
           The OU to which a machine is joined determines which users will be able to
           authenticate against the machine and which group policies will be applied. This option
           has no effect when leaving a domain.

       --enable module
           Explicitly enables the configuration module module during the join or leave operation.

       --disable module
           Explicitly disables the configuration module module during the join or leave
           operation.

           Note that some modules are necessary for the proper operation of Likewise while joined
           to AD. If you attempt to disable such a module, domainjoin-cli will refuse to proceed
           with a join operation.

           For some modules, it is possible to make the relevant configuration changes by hand;
           domainjoin-cli will inform you of the necessary changes and will proceed with the
           module disabled if it detects that the changes have been made.

       --details module
           Provide details about module module and what specific configuration changes it would
           perform during a join or leave operation. No actual operation is performed.

       --preview
           Provide a summary of what configuration modules would be run during a join or leave
           operation. No actual operation is performed.

       --advanced
           Turns on debugging information during leave and join operations and provides more
           verbose output when using --preview. This is generally only helpful when diagnosing
           unusual system or network configuration issues.

EXAMPLES

       Example invocations of domainjoin-cli and their effects follow:

           $ domainjoin-cli join sales.my-company.com Administrator@sales rosebud

       Joins the AD domain sales.my-company.com using Administrator as the username and rosebud
       as the password. This is the typical join scenario.

           $ domainjoin-cli --log . leave

       Leaves the current AD domain without attempting to disable the machine account as no user
       credentials were specified. Information about the process will be logged to the console at
       the default logging level.

           $ domainjoin-cli join --disable nsswitch sales.my-company.com Administrator@sales

       Joins the AD domain sales.my-company.com using Administrator as the username and prompting
       for the password. If possible, nsswitch configuration will not be modified.

           $ domainjoin-cli join --preview sales.my-company.com Administrator@sales rosebud

       Show what configuration modules would be run when joining the AD domain
       sales.my-company.com.

           $ domainjoin-cli join --details pam sales.my-company.com Administrator@sales rosebud

       Show what changes would be made to the system by the pam module when joining the AD domain
       sales.my-company.com.
