Applies to:

All versions of Centrify Zone Provisioning Agent on Windows platforms

 

Question:

How do you configure or set up ZPA to provision users cross forest in a two-way trust with unique gid?

 

Answer:

This is a basic set up for ZPA to provision cross forest users.  Follow the steps below:

 

1. In Domain 1, create a Domain Local Security Group call it Group_domain1

 

2. In Domain 2, Create another group with Domain Local Security Group call it Group_domain2
 

3. Add users from both Domains into Group_domain1, i.g. user1@domain1.com and user2@domain2.com

 

4. Add users that you want to provision from Domain2 into Group_domain2 - if you don't do this, ZPA will error with "No primary group found".

 

5. In the ZPA zone, go to Groups, and add both Group_domain1 and Group_domain2.

 

6. Add Group_domain1 into an AD group called ZPA_MasterGroup.  Meaning, in the ZPA source group, you would select ZPA_MasterGroup which contains Group_domain1.

 

7. In ZPA, add ZPA_Mastergroup to Source Group.
