Authentication Service ,

Applies to: Centrify DirectControl ldapproxy 5.0.2-388


After upgrading DirectControl Agent with ldapproxy from 4.4.3 to 5.0.2 via the script. The ldapproxy process cannot start:

/etc/centrifydc//openldap/schema/nis.schema: line 165: AttributeType not found: "homeDirectory" 


The installer script ( does not update the ldapproxy configuration file correctly. It causes a process start failure.


1) Run the installer script again to remove and re-install the ldapproxy package. It will then correctly create the configuration file.


2) Perform adleave and then adjoin, the config file will be generated correctly during the adjoin process.



This is fixed in Centrify DirectControl
ldapproxy 5.1.0 and above.
