With the Centrify Agent for Windows installed, users with elevated privilege do not have sufficient permission to access settings in the local group policy editor. The following warning appears when nodes within Security Settings -> Local Policies or Security Settings -> Accounts Policies are expanded:
The Group Policy security settings that apply to this machine could not be determined.
The error returned when trying to retrieve these settings from the local security database (%windir%\security\database\secedit.sdb) was: The parameter is incorrect.
All local security settings will be displayed, but no indication will be given as to whether or not a given security setting is defined by Group Policy.
Any local security setting modified through this User Interface may subsequently be overridden by domain-level policies.
This issue occurs on Windows 8.1 and Windows 2012 R2.
When the agent is installed, a Centrify authentication library is inserted into the registry. This warning appears when Microsoft services.exe tries to load the custom Centrify authentication package .dll files.
