Hi Magnus,

Last releases (as far as I remember from 5.4) Linux PAM Client and Mac OS X Client do not require to have the OS joined to domain.
You should switch the corresponding event's type from "OS logon (domain)" to "OS logon (local)" and then during logon it will be required to map the domain account which you will use for login to a local account.
At the moment you may login with only Active Directory users. Other repositories are not supported.
