KB-3497: dzinfo -C causes segfault

Centrify DirectControl ,  

12 April,16 at 11:26 AM

Applies to: All versions of Centrify DirectControl
 
Question:
 
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?
 
Answer:
 
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:
 
user:object;property:value
 
For example, for the user maya, the following output may be seen:
 
maya:ROLE:LocalUser:No maya:ROLE:Role Name:dba
