KB-7493: User accont retaining rights after being removed from Active Directory group that allocated them

Centrify DirectAudit ,   Centrify DirectControl ,  

21 September,16 at 03:34 PM

Applies to: All version of DirectControl and DirectAudit.

Problem:
An Active Directory group is created to give certain users admin rights on *nix servers and the group has been provisioned into Centrify. A user has been removed from the AD group, removal from the group in the zone is verified, but the user still has admin rights on *nix machines.

Cause:

After looking at the user's provisioned account, the group is listed as his primary group.

Resolution:
Changed the user's primary group to a group he is still a member of and ran adflush -f and adreload. The admin rights to *nix machines are now gone.
