Unexpected error from adquery: Unsuccesful IPC execute: system error

and its corresponding debug messages in centrifydc.log

adclient[17656]: DEBUG <fd:23 get object> daemon.execute Get object: sid = 0105000000000005150000001a280732714a805d7e145c2f01020000

adclient[17656]: WARN <fd:23 get object> daemon.execute Uncaught exception 'unknown domain SID' -- returning 'unsuccessful' to client

We found couple of causes for this behavior:
1) The domain map may not be complete if there was a problem reaching the Global Catalog during startup.
This can also be caused by sIDHistory values which result from using the Active Directory Migration Tool to migrate users and groups from one domain to another. We will support
sIDHistory in 4.2 release.

This issue is fixed in DirectControl 4.1.1.
