Applies to: Centrify DirectControl 4.x and below on all OS platforms.


What impact would changing authentication methods in Active Directory to use NTLMv2 have on the following products?:
  • Centrify DirectControl agents
  • Centrify Samba
  • DirectControl for Apache
  • DirectControl for Web Applications


Centrify DirectControl agent directly doesn't depend on NTLM authentication; it uses Kerberos authentication for authenticating AD Users logging onto Unix/Linux machines which are joined to Active Directory domain.

Changing the authentication method to NTLMv2 will not impact the Centrify DirectControl agent for authenticating users against AD.
Centrify SambaAs of 3.0.x, Centrify Samba supports both NTLMv1 and NTLMv2 for authentication.
DirectControl for ApacheDirectControl for Apache module supports Basic, NTLM, Kerberos authentication. NTLMv2 is supported as of 4.0.x
DirectControl for Web Applications (Tomcat, Weblogic and Websphere servers)DirectControl for Web Applications module supports Basic, NTLM, and Kerberos authentication. NTLMv2 is supported as of 4.1.x
