Yes, you can configure Active Directory to be used as a User Directory even if Bitbucket Server is running on Linux.

I am not sure what this mean:  "Please note that Using Windows Authentication between a Linux Bitbucket Server installation and SQL server is not supported. Windows authentication is only available for Bitbucket instances running on Windows. It cannot be used on Linux because Microsoft does not provide shared objects for it. You will need to enable mixed-mode authentication for SQL Server if you are running Bitbucket on Linux."

Can you please explain.  Thank you
