KB-6352: How can the Computer Specific Current DC, Preferred Site and Subnet Site Be Shown For a Computer Joined to the Domain?

9 March,16 at 09:11 PM

Applies to:
Centrify Direct Control Suite 2016

On a Unix machine that is joined to the domain, how can the current domain controller, the site for the current DC and the site for the preferred DC be retrieved?


In Suite 2016, the adinfo command can retrieve the current DC and the current site information.

If the preferred site is set through the parameter in /etc/centrifydc/centrifydc.conf my-preferred-dc-site
but the Domain Contoller that is connected belongs to site
Subnet site: Demo-site

The following output is seen in adinfo

In Active Directory the preferred site and the current site (subnet site) values are stored on the computer object's multi-valued attribute: postalAddress

In PowerShell, the Get-CdmManagedComputer command is enhanced to show two new properties:

o Preferred Site
o Subnet Site
