Is there a DZWIN CLI tool to join windows systems to a zone?


Starting with Centrify Suite 2016 release, Centrify now has the ability to join Windows systems running DirectAuthorize for Windows ( DZWIN ) using the command line interface.
This has been added to facilitate in the rollout of Windows systems  using DZWIN as in previous releases the only method to join the zone was through the GUI.


Launch Command Prompt > type “dzjoin” > press enter

It will pop up the follow message Please specify a zone."
Usage: dzjoin [/c <domain controller> ] [/f]
{/z <zonename> | /s | /v}
/c Specify a perferred domain controller to connect to.
/f Supress any warning.
/v Show the agent version.
/z Specify the zonename for the zone to join to.
If the zonename is not unqiue, please use the canonical name instead.
/s Join to the zone contains existing setup for this client. The client
must have already precreated in the zone or had previously joined to
the zone but remotely left in a disconnected situation.”
