KB-1305: Cannot map root user (from adnisd) to NFS user maps with Microsoft NFS server

Centrify DirectAudit ,   Centrify DirectControl ,   Centrify Identity Service, Mac Edition ,  

12 April,16 at 11:45 AM

Applies to: All versions of DirectControl with Microsoft NFS Server

Problem:

After following the whitepaper on "Using DirectControl with Microsoft NFS Server", root users cannot be seen to map.

Cause:

This is because adclient ignores users with UID 0, GID 0, the name root, and the groups wheel and root from Active Directory.

Resolution:

Before following the steps in the document, do the following:

- Edit /etc/centrifydc/user.ignore and comment out  "root".
- Edit /etc/centrifydc/group.ignore and comment out "root, wheel".
- Edit /etc/centrifydc/centrifydc.conf, un-comment and set the parameter

nss.squash.root: false

Then run adflush, adreload and restart adclient.
