Can we use a non-Windows solution to act as a Domain Controller?

You can try using another system to emulate a Windows DC if you wish. Please understand that there is a risk for you to do this. We have only tested our service scanner against a Windows AD, so if there is some quirk with your non-windows based solution that causes the service scanner not to register it, that will be something you will be responsible for.

As mentioned in the Scenario, your system will not only need to be able to bind via LDAP, but also need to issue Kerberos tickets in tandem.

Again, even if it works in your testing but not with our scanner, it’s on you to fix.
