Attempting to ssh into a RedHat 6.2 serverĀ as this user will stall the session and eventually cause adclient to disconnect, following messages can be captured from debug log:

Uncheck "Do not require Kerberos Preauthentication" option in ADUC for target user.


This has been fixed in Centrify DirectControl 5.1.0 and above.
