KB-10379: Provisioned AD users report "I have no name!"

Centrify DirectControl ,  

26 May,18 at 02:21 PM

Problem:

Upon doing an su to a provisioned AD user  the system shows "I have no name!" instead of the unix name.

Reason:

The access permissions for the /var  folder is incorrectly set.

Solution:
Please use the chmod command as root or sudo to set the permissions to "755"  (rwxr-xr-x).

chmod 755 /var

This action should immediately resolve the issue.
