KB-2433: Why does the /tmp folder fill up with cims files?

Centrify DirectControl ,  

12 April,16 at 11:10 AM

Applies to: Centrify DirectControl 4.4.3 and below on all platforms.

Question:

Why does the /tmp folder fill up with cims files?


Answer:

This is a known issue if the GP processor runs into trouble while downloading GPs - it will terminate without cleaning up the temporary files. 


Workaround:

1) Remove all /tmp/cimsxxxx files.
2) Run the command "adgpupdate".


Resolution:

This is fixed in Centrify DirectControl 4.4.4 and above.
