KB-7104: Changes made to Centrify-managed local users do not take effect when ADUC or ADSI Edit is used

30 June,16 at 03:50 PM


Applies to: 

Centrify Server Suite 2016 and later (DirectControl 5.3.0+). 


Problem: 

The admanagelocal command does not reload local user information after updating local user attributes through AD Users and Computers or ADSI Edit. 
 
[root@centos67 ~]# admanagelocal -u -l all
TestLocaluser1:x:55555:55555:Test Local:/home/testlocaluser1:/bin/bash:enabled
[root@centos67 ~]# admanagelocal -R
[root@centos67 ~]# admanagelocal -u -l all
TestLocaluser1:x:55555:55555:Test Local:/home/testlocaluser1:/bin/bash:enabled

Cause: 

The admanagelocal -R option checks the local user's container's time stamp for changes. If the time stamp is the same as that of cache, it uses cached data instead. 
When a field is edited through ADUC or ADSI Edit, the container's time stamp is unchanged. Because of this, admanagelocal uses cached data. 


Resolution: 

Please use Access Manager or adedit to update local users' information. 
'admangelocal -R -p -f' can also be used to force it to read from AD. 
For example: 
 
[root@centos67 ~]# admanagelocal -u -l all
TestLocaluser1:x:55555:55556:Test Local:/home/testlocaluser1:/bin/bash:enabled
[root@centos67 ~]# admanagelocal -R -p -f
[root@centos67 ~]# admanagelocal -u -l all
TestLocaluser1:x:88888:88888:Test Local:/home/testlocaluser1:/bin/bash:enabled
