Applied to:
Centrify DirectControl 5.2.3+ on all OS platform

How to specific the license type to use when joining the server to AD using adjoin?

Starting DirectControl 5.2.3 [Centrify Server 2015.1 release] Centrify administrator can use adjoin with -t [--Licensetype server|workstation] to specific which license type to use when joining the Linux/Unix server to the AD.

Example usage:
adjoin --user --name orlando --container "ou=Unix com-puters" --Licensetype server --zone finance

Option Explain
This option enables you to specify whether the computer joining the domain should use a "Server" license or a "Workstation" license. If you don’t specify this option, the computer is licensed as a server by default. You can change the license type after joining a domain with the adlicense command
