KB-28296: adrmlocal not removing local groups

Authentication Service ,  

28 February,20 at 07:53 PM

Problem: It has been reported that when running the adrmlocal command, the local groups that should be getting removed are not. Although the adrmlocal command is intended to report and remove local user names that duplicate Active Directory user names, it can do the same for local groups.

For example:
root> /usr/share/centrifydc/bin/adrmlocal -f

executing command (/usr/sbin/rmgroup folderusers )...
Fail in deleting local group folderusers

Cause: This issue is because the groups have been set as a local user's primary group.

Solution: Please verify that any local groups that are trying to be removed are not the primary group of a local user. Then try again to run the adrmlocal command and the groups should get removed.
