KB-1209: adjoin -s adds dns.dc entry to centrifydc.conf

Centrify DirectControl ,   Centrify Identity Service, Mac Edition ,  

12 April,16 at 11:12 AM

Applies to:  DirectControl 4.0.x - 4.4.x running on all platforms

Problem:

adclient has a problem with failover to another domain controller if the domain controller that it is currently connected to is either decommissioned or is having problems.

Cause:

The reason may be that there is a spurious dns.dc entry in the /etc/centrifydc/centrifydc.conf file. The entry may be there if you've have run adjoin with the -s option or may have been added manually.

Workaround:

Remove the dns.dc entry from centrifydc.conf and run adreload.

To  check if you have a dns.dc entry pointing to the  decommissioned / problem domain controller, run the following command:

grep dns.dc /etc/centrifydc/centrifydc.conf

Resolution:

This issue has been fixed in DirectControl 5.1.0
