Authentication Service, Auditing and Monitoring Service
the username root@localhost keeps showing up when root should be used causing issues with jobs that run as root.
Applies to: Centrify DirectControl and DirectAudit - All versions
Issue: The UNIX/Linux system uses root@localhost instead of root for all jobs and inquiries that need root causing job failures and system access issues.
Cause: root@localhost is getting stuck in cache. Usually clearing cache will correct the issue but if it comes back, the root@localhost user may have been created manually or there is a reference to it in the crontab.
Resolution: Remove the manually created user or rename the manually created entry in the crontab from root@localhost to root or remove the entry if not needed.
Caches to clear: nscd -i hosts -> for clearing nscd cache daflush -f -> for clearing DirectAudit cache adflush -f -> for clearing DirectControl cache
