Ubuntu AD authentication nightmare

Disclaimer: my Linux sucks!

Scenario: Trying to authenticate a test Ubuntu 12.04 box with AD. All I want is to be able to log in as an AD user. I do not want to join the machine to the domain. Have been trying this and this but something is not working and I have no idea what it is. Any pointers are appreciated.

    And here I was thinking AD was only native to Windows. Smh, learn something new everyday.

    AD is basically Microsoft's implementation of LDAP. LDAP is an open, vendor neutral, industry standard protocol. So yeah, it works.
