KB-3284: How to rotate Centrify debug logs after it reaches a certain size?

Authentication Service ,

Applies to: Centrify DirectControl on AIX
Centrify debug logs seem to roll over very quickly approximately every 5MBs. 
Is it possible to change this value?
As root, edit /usr/share/centrifydc/bin/addebug script and look for the line below.
The 5m refers to 5 MBs (default).
 # Enable log rotation
            CDC_LOG_OPTIONS="\trotate size 5m files 5 compress"
This value can be changed to the desired value such as "50m" or "100m". 
The other number refers to the number of roll-over files saved.
