No, you are correct. I was not thinking clearly before. LDAP isn't quite the same as directly joining the domain with a workstation account and accessing AD directly, but it does work similarly and is more universally compatible.
I guess my last remaining question is, why would I have to use both RADIUS, for implementing admin access through AD security group membership, and LDAP, for using AD group membership with user-id ? Why can't either method be used for both?
Currently I am assuming that I should drop Kerberos as being redundant (or possibly blocking LDAP/RADIUS when used within an authentication sequence), implement RADIUS for admin access via AD security group and implement LDAP for user-id security group matching.
Eventually when I'm done, I'll document it clearly for posterity including the Windows side of things. Where would one submit such documentation?
