How to start a Linux Automic agent with an AD-User Account?

I would like to start the Automic agent on our Debian 8 Linux system with an AD-User account and not with a local user account.
The server, where the agent is installed, has a sernet-samba package installed and is also a member of the AD-Domain. The Automic server is no member of the AD-Domain. With the FTP3-Agent I can transfer files via SFTP and I can execute commands with the AD-credentials.

I can start the Agent with the AD-User, but there is no possibility to start a JOBS or Filetransfer. If a JOBS-Object should be run on that server I always get the Error "Username or Password unknown".

After that, I tried to use PAM for authentication, but actually I don't know how to configure PAM for Debian 8. Does anyone have experience with the PAM-authentication? I changed the 2 parameters ( authentication=pam and libname=l/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ the ucxjlx6.ini file and created a file /etc/pam.d/ucxjlx6 with the content:

auth       include      system-auth
account    include      system-auth
password   include      system-auth

I could start the Agent again, but if I try to run a command in a JOBS-object, the agent crahes.

Can annyone help me with this problem? It would be much better for us, if we could start the agent with an AD-user account.
