KB-1388: Getting an error "Join to zone is only permitted with a licensed copy of DirectControl."

Applies to: DirectControl 4.4 EA on all platforms


Attempting join with DirectControl 4.4 EA is resulting in the following error:
Join to zone is only permitted with a licensed copy of DirectControl.
Get a license or learn more about Centrify Suite at
Without a license, you may connect to a domain through Auto Zone by specifying
adjoin -w


By default new installation of DirectControl 4.4 EA defaults to unlicensed mode. That's why join to a zone fails.


Run the command as root : sudo adlicense -l


Fixed in DirectControl 4.4
