    We want to transition users from desktops to remote machine (or between systems) without requiring them to re-enter credential, is there a way to centralize authentication for UNIX, Linux and Mac environments?

    I know that you can join macOS to a Windows domain, if that helps.

    One uses AD. Linux/Mac can be easily joined to AD. I never seen proper UNIX system

    Interesting, but no chance in hell to get it working on Mac
