Is there any link between Active Directory Domain and Node?

We are running Active Directory discovery to discover our AD topology.  The Active Directory Domains are populated, but aren't really linked to anything outside of the AD realm.  We are looking to tie Nodes to their respective AD Domain.  CI Type Manager does not show any direct link between AD Domain and Node.

Is there an indirect link between AD Domain and Nodes (such as workstations and servers -- not the domain controller itself)?  Has anyone created a direct link between AD Domain and Node?

Re: Is there any link between Active Directory Domain and Node?

Maybe a picture will better illustrate the problem? See attached.

We were tasked with producing a report of all 'nodes' within a domain.  The best report we could create was filtering on the "Windows AD Domain Name" attribute on nodes but this is inaccurate as a node can be undiscovered or aged-out but still have an AD object.  Is there any way to discover all nodes as per AD and create/discover the respective node CI?
