How to grant permission on linux server to an Active Directory group

Vijayvargia, Sudipta 41 Reputation points

in our project we use putty to connect to linux server for read/write app files.
All permissions granted to the server is individually granted by some other team.

I write this question to understand how can i guide that other team to grant access to linux server to our dev Active Directory (AD) group.

I am new to the uses of AD group & it would help me if someone can provide me some guidance here.

    You can join Linux servers and workstations into an Active Directory environment. I have used a product called Likewise-open in the past. From their website:

    Joins non-Windows systems to Active Directory domains in a single step from the command line or from a GUI
    Authenticates users with a single user name and password on both Windows and non-Windows
    Enforces the same password policies for non-Windows users and Windows users
    Supports multiple forests with one-way and two-way cross forest trusts
    Caches credentials in case your domain controller goes down
    Provides single sign-on for SSH and Putty
    Next-generation authentication engine that supports Kerberos, NTLM, and SPNEGO
    No schema changes to Active Directory required
