KB-0526: Applying latest Sun cluster patches breaks Centrify DirectControl agent on Solaris

Centrify DirectAudit ,   Centrify DirectControl ,   Centrify Identity Service, Mac Edition ,  

12 April,16 at 11:45 AM

Applies To:

All DirectControl versions and Solaris 9, Solaris 10


After applying latest Sun cluster patches either upon reboot Centrify DirectControl agent doesn't come up or running the ad* commands results in "bus error" & dumps core.


The issue is introduced by new patch which is a part of cluster patches. The patch broke legacy code and hence adclient and ad* command result in bus error.


On Solaris 9:

Problem occurs if patch 112970-12 (or higher revision number) is installed or upgraded to. Please back out the patch 112970-12 to earlier revision.

The patch 112970-12 is superseded by patch 112837-14. If you run into this issue please backout the patch.

On Solaris 10:

Problem occurs if patch 120032-03 (or higher revision number) is installed or upgraded to.

Please back out the patch 120032-03 to earlier revision.


This issue is addressed in the maintenance release version 3.0.7.
