KB-3497: dzinfo -C causes segfault

Authentication Service ,  

12 April,16 at 11:26 AM

Applies to: All versions of Centrify DirectControl
A newly installed server segfaults when the command dzinfo -C (display computer role) is run on a RHEL 5.8 server. It also happens on AIX systems as well.

Is there any reason for this?
Based on stack trace and other logs, this can happen if the computer role name in question is greater than 15 characters.
Until this issue is resolved by Centrify at a later date and release, it is advised to use a shorter computer role name (15 characters less), or use the first role to have the longest name, or use dzinfo -f which will provide all information.
From the documentation, the usage of dzinfo -C or -f is shown below:
-C, --computer-role Display information about the computer roles for users on this computer. This option requires root privilege. Specify a user to show computer roles for that user, or do not specify a user to show all computer roles for this computer.
-f, --format Generates formatted output that can be used in scripts. The output separates the properties of each object into a single line with a colon (:) between each field. 
The basic output format is:
For example, for the user maya, the following output may be seen:
maya:ROLE:LocalUser:No maya:ROLE:Role Name:dba
