[I assume that means GNU/Linux.]  You probably want to be more specific
about the value of `using' and what the circumstances are, e.g. whether
`you' have control of the AD.  The latter is likely the main constraint.

There are several, but you probably don't want them.  The ones with
which I'm familiar -- too familiar in the case of Centrify -- are aimed
at Doze people who think they should/can control everything with AD,
specifically its normal interface.
