Install likewise-open on Ubuntu

apt-get install likewise-open
User that can join AD should be an EID. The –ou option can also be used to place this in a Organizational Unit.
domainjoin-cli join UserThatCanJoinAD
domainjoin-cli join –ou path/organizationalUnitName domainName joinAccount

To remove the computer from the domain run:
domainjoin-cli leave

Edit sudoers to allow users to become elevated users.
root@alb-netmon1:~# visudo # /etc/sudoers
# # This file MUST be edited with the ‘visudo’ command as root.
# # See the man page for details on how to write a sudoers file.
# Defaults env_reset
# Host alias specification
# User alias specification
# Cmnd alias specification
# User privilege specification root ALL=(ALL) ALL
#To add just one user account add the line below with the correct EID. TWCCORP\\e0NNNNN ALL=(ALL) ALL
# Allow members of group sudo to execute any command
# (Note that later entries override this, so you might need to move
# it further down) %sudo ALL=(ALL) ALL
# #includedir /etc/sudoers.d
# Members of the admin group may gain root privileges %admin ALL=(ALL) ALL
#To add an entire group use something like the line below
%domain\\AD_Group ALL=(ALL) ALL

After making changes in visudo restart sudo /etc/init.d/sudo restart
I’m currently only adding single users.
Then to login with SSH and your EID
ssh domain\\E0NNNNN@hostname

I also did this for Debian recently but two things are different. I couldn’t find a DEB package  and the shell wasn’t set by default. Also Likewise was taken over by another company and has a new name, Power Broker Identity Services.

chmod +x filename
Run the install ./filename
Read and understand the installation agreement, current license is GPL/GPLv2.

As above add you user to sudo and join to the AD domain. Set a shell if needed, I like bash and wasn’t getting that by default.
