Kickstart will have a 'realm join example.com' command, to join the machine
during install to an AD or FreeIPA domain. This will take place using one time
passwords or password-less joins to an AD or FreeIPA domain.
== Detailed description ==
realmd is an on demand system DBus service, which allows callers to configure
network authentication and domain membership in a standard way. realmd
discovers information about the domain or realm automatically and does not
require complicated configuration in order to join a domain or realm.
By integrating realmd with Kickstart and Anaconda, administrators will be able
to add machines to a domain en-masse. This can be done without leaking
administrative domain credentials into the kickstart fail.
In addition there will be a GUI for joining a domain during the anaconda
This will be implemented as an Anaconda addon, to help keep the scope and base
feature set of Anaconda in check.
