KB-4171: How to modify the Analyze / AD Check of Deployment Manager to only use a specific domain controller

Applies to: Centrify Deployment Manager


Is there a way to modify the Analyze / AD Check stage of Deployment Manager so that it only uses a specific domain controller?

It appears to go down a list of available domain controllers that are not usable which causes the Analyze stage to never finish and thus Deployment Manager cannot continue.

Can Deployment Manager be modified to use a specific domain controller?

  1. Backup the adcheck.lua script located in one of the following locations (depending on the version of Deployment Manager installed):
    • C:\Users\User\AppData\Roaming\Centrify\DeploymentManager\Scripts
    • C:\Documents and Settings\User\Application Data\Centrify\DeploymentManager\Scripts
  2. Edit the main script file and change the following line:
    • adcheck_cmd = string.format("%s -t os -t ad", adcheck_cmd)
      • to:
    • adcheck_cmd = string.format("%s -t os -t ad -s <domain_controller>", adcheck_cmd)
      • Where the -s flag allows the specification of a domain controller for agent to join.
