Applies to Centrify DirectControl 5.2.2 on all platform
When using precreate_computer with –all option, there will be an error encountered if binding to a domain without global catalog (GC):
>precreate_computer firstname.lastname@example.org - all
No binding for GC in forest US.SUPPORT.LOCAL
Since Centrify Suite 2015 the global catalog search is required for pre-creating computer. When there is no GC binding present, it tries to bind to the parent domain (precisely forest name as the domain) and perform the search. The purpose of the search is to avoid duplicate service connection point (SCP) objects in the forest, which will cause conflict during adjoin.
Please add extra binding to the parent domain in adedit.
Bind with machine credential:
bind -machine <parent domain>
bind -machine support.local
Bind with user credential:
bind <parent domain> <User>
bind support.local admin_supportResolution:In Suite 2015.1 has introduced an option -nogc to bypass the GC search.
