KB-1551: Access denied due to logonHours restrictions

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

Applies to: DirectControl 4.4.0 on AIX 6.1, HPUX 11.23 IA/PA-RISC, Solaris 8, 9 Sparc 64 bit

After upgrading to DirectControl 4.4.0, AD users are denied access logging into the Unix/Linux boxes via ssh/telnet/GUI and you may see the following message being logged into syslog when user login fails:

Feb 5 11:42:24 CentrifySun01 adclient[4754]: INFO <fd:17 PAMIsUserAllowedAccess> audit User 'justin' is not authorized: User 'justin' denied access because of restricted logon hours

You may run into this problem with user accounts where the attribute "loginHours" is not empty specifically on systems where OS vendors deprecated %z out of strftime() function. Due to this our current version may sometimes not calculate the correct Time Zone, thus preventing user login.

Using ADSIEdit clear the logonHours attribute on the AD user object.

Fixed in DirectControl 4.4.1
