Hi Rowland,

you can use winbind with CEntos8 see these (with and without sssd). YOu 
need to log in but the account is free. However I included the Headers

How to configure a Samba server with SSSD in RHEL with Winbind handling 
AD Join

How to join Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8 to Active Directory using Winbind

I'll send you the pdfs off-list.

This is working for us and we also can use ADUC.
