      Description

      From ADM-258:

      Apparently it is not possible to join Active Directory setups if NetBIOS workgroup does not match the first part of the AD domain, as zadmin uses the first part of the AD domain as workgroup name.

      Reminder: Remove the note from the docs again, which was added in ADM-258.

          The proper solution is probably extending the AD auth configuration form by a "workgroup" entry, which defaults to the first part of the domain, but can be changed for edge cases like this one.
