KB-3550: Oracle service account not working as expected after server is joined to domain

Authentication Service ,  

12 April,16 at 11:08 AM

Applies to:  All versions of Centrify DirectControl on all supported platforms
After installing Centrify DirectControl on an Oracle server and joining it to a domain, local accounts such as the Oracle service account are no longer working properly.  
The following error may be seen when trying to run sqlplus:
ORA-01031: insufficient privileges
A possible cause is the Oracle account is a member of the local group 'dba', which is also provisioned as an AD-enabled group and conflicts with the local dba group.   
  1. Enable the following parameter in /etc/centrifydc/centrifydc.conf: true 

  2. Save the changes and either run adreload or restart adclient using: /usr/share/centrifydc/bin/centrifydc restart.
  3. Retry the previous commands or query the group for example using:

    getent group dba 

    The oracle account should now show up as a member.
