Customer has integrated Linux machines with AD using powerbroker utility, which is open source version.
We have deployed SAS using PAM authentication and authentication is working fine with AD users.
Till now we have not faced any challenges with AD authentication.
Now customer wants to know if its there any limitation for SAS to work with powerbroker's open source version.
Has anyone worked with powerbroker open source version or have any inputs on customer's query.

This is how I understand PowerBroker and SAS authentication to work / or not work together:
Authentication required for Workspace Server, Stored Process Server etc. will happen every time such a server is being
spawned by the Object Spawner. The user IDs authenticated by the metadata server when communicating with the
Object Spawner require an OS user ID (very high level and unconventional explained)
As far as I understand PowerBroker, such an authentication mechanism wouldn't happen anymore and for that reason,
PowerBroker might not work with SAS.
Maybe someone else has some additional input. Else, this would be a good candidate to be addressed with
SAS Tech Sup.
