KB-2405: Unable to login in cached mode if home directory is on a NFS server

Centrify DirectControl ,  

12 April,16 at 11:11 AM

Applies to: All versions of Centrify DirectControl.
 
Question:
 
If the network service is stopped on the OS side of things or if network cable is unplugged, Centrify goes into disconnected mode as expected. If a Centrify user has logged in at least once and if the home directory is on an NFS server, will cached credentials work?

Answer:
 
Cached credentials will work if the Centrify user has logged in at least once in connected mode and if the command adflush is not run manually by customer. However if the home directory is on an NFS server, Centrify will attempt to mount the same and will fail. This is really not a Centrify issue as we cannot control NFS behavior, however future releases of software will prevent the NFS trigger. Please see KB-2156 for more details.
