KB-2453: AD user unable to login after assigning the role to an AD distribution group

Centrify DirectControl ,  

12 April,16 at 11:09 AM

Applies to: All versions of Centrify DirectControl on all platforms.

Problem:

After assigning a role to an AD Distribution group and adding AD users to the group:

Running dzinfo [AD user] on the UNIX side will show the role is in place, but AD users cannot login.

Running 
dzinfo [AD user] again will then show the role is now missing:

[root@rhel ~]# dzinfo test1

User: test1

Forced into restricted environment: No

  Role Name        Avail Restricted Env

  ---------------  ----- --------------

  (test1 has no roles assigned)

  PAM Application  Avail Source Roles

  ---------------  ----- --------------------

Privileged commands:

  Name             Avail Command               Source Roles

  ---------------  ----- --------------------  --------------------

  (test1 has no privileged command rights)
 

Running the command #adflush -a (flush authorization cache) can get back the role assignment, but the role assignment will be missing again after the AD user logs in.



Cause:

AD Distribution group is not supported except via the ZPA. 

 

Workaround:

In ADUC or the CDC console, please change the group back to Security Group and it should function properly.
