KB-10525: How to Manually Trigger Centrify Keychain Sync

Mac & PC Management Service ,

Applies to:

With Centrify DirectControl Agent for Mac (version 5.5.0) we have added a solution to keep your Keychain in sync when updating your AD password. Our solution will detect when a user’s AD password has been changed and prompt the user to get their passwords back in sync.


Is there a manual way to trigger the Centrify Keychain Sync?


Open Terminal and type:
"open /usr/local/share/centrifydc/libexec/Centrify\ Keychain\"
Keychain already in sync

This will open the application. If it says that the user's keychain is up to date, you can override everything by calling the override argument in terminal:

"open /usr/local/share/centrifydc/libexec/Centrify\ Keychain\ --args -override"
