Network people already heavily using Active Directory and asking if we can support this.

Well - partially. SSO support and central authentication in i5/OS is
spotty at best - you'll still need to a *USRPRF Object for each users.
It requires explicit support by applications. You're fine if you're
running legacy 5250 applications using System i Access, but if you're
running web applications you'll need to invest quite a bit of work.

It's called EIM - Enterprise Identitity Mapping. For an example, look

One good thing though: You don't need to pay for any 3rd Party Applications.
