KB-14229: Methods Used by the Centrify Agent When Selecting a Connector

Privileged Access Service ,  

6 May,19 at 04:53 PM

Problem:
  
The Centrify agent chooses a connector based on the site as defined in Active Directory Sites and Services.  If the site is not defined in AD, the agent selects a connector randomly.  This can lead to a selected connector that is not the ideal for the agent given the topology of the network.  Performance degradation can occur if the incorrect connector is chosen.  

Resolution:
  
In release 18.11, additional methods have been introduced to allow more exact methods of selecting the connector.  The connector choice is made based on the following:
  1. The connector has the same AD site and same subnet as the agent.
  2. The connector has the same AD site but a different subnet as the agent.
  3. The connector has a different site and different subnet as the agent.
  4. The connector is chosen at random.

** NOTE: This feature is not available on the AIX platform.  On AIX, the agent will randomly select a connector.
