 From my understanding it is all supposed to be automatic, you just tick 
a box during the install and, after the install, you can log in with an 
AD user. I tried every permutation of username I could think of: 
'username', 'DOMAIN\username', 'username at dns.domain.tld', etc. Nothing 
worked, so I logged in as the user I created during the install, opened 
a terminal and ran 'getent passwd rowland', this returned nothing, I 
checked in AD and the machines object had been created but with mistakes 
(wrong SPN etc). It looks like it still has problems.
