Problem: MFA being enforced for sudo on Linux but not on AIX

When users log into AIX or Linux servers, they must use MFA. After they are logged on, then do sudo on AIX no MFA is required, but on Linux (both RedHat and SuSE) it is always required.

Cause: sudo is going through Centrify PAM stack. 

Workaround


1. Go to /etc/centrifydc/centrifydc.conf
2. Edit the below parameter

#pam.mfa.program.ignore: vsftpd java httpd cdc_chkpwd kdm unix2_chkpwd

To

pam.mfa.program.ignore: vsftpd java httpd cdc_chkpwd kdm unix2_chkpwd sudo

Then save it and run adreload/restart adclient
