KB-0179: Java Applications and Oracle doesn't run after CDC installed.

Authentication Service ,  

12 April,16 at 11:30 AM


Java applications and Oracle does not run after Centrify DirectControl is installed.


For some applications which depend on NSS, the order in the nsswitch.conf file is very relevant and important. Centrify edits the /etc/nsswitch.conf causing the application to try and authenticate with Centrify. 


Make sure you if you have applications which are dependent on NSS, have 'files' entry in front of centrifydc in /etc/nsswitch.conf

Centrify Direct Control agent automatically updates the /etc/nsswitch.conf file, it is strongly recommended to configure the agent so it does not change the entries in the file.

This can be achieved by editing /etc/centrifydc/centrifydc.conf file. Open and look for

adclient.autoedit: <true/false>

and set it to false.
