Applies to: Centrify DirectControl version 5.1.0 and above on all platforms


How to force
dzdo or sudo to re-authenticate an AD user after a re-login?


Starting in DirectControl 5.1.0 release, there are 2 new parameters in
/etc/centrifydc/centrifydc.conf that will clear the dzdo/sudo password timestamp on logout if set to true:

adclient.sudo.clear.passwd.timestamp: true
adclient.dzdo.clear.passwd.timestamp: true

These 2 parameters can also be applied with the following group policies:
"Computer Configuration"
-> "Centrify Settings"
  -> "DirectControl Settings"
    -> "Dzdo Settings"
       -> "Force dzdo re-authentication when relogin"

"Computer Configuration"
-> "Centrify Settings"
   -> "DirectControl Settings"
     -> "sudo Settings"
       -> "Force sudo re-authentication when relogin"
