KB-7783: Adnisd is Failing to Start When the Machine is Rebooted

21 December,16 at 08:59 PM

Applies to:  
All versions of Centrify NIS on all supported platforms.

On Centrify enabled *nix machines 'adnisd' is not starting successfully when the machine is rebooted.


'adclient' must be running and in a "Connected" state before 'adnisd' can complete startup. In this case, the system took an extended amount of time to move into a "Connected" state and 'adnisd' attempted to start before this occurred, causing the service startup to fail. ​

If the startup of adnisd is delayed, adclient will complete its startup and then adnisd will start without issue. Below are the steps for delaying the adnisd startup:

1)  Edit and change the line in 'adinsd.service' to
ExecStartPre=/etc/centrifydc/scripts/systemd/ ; /usr/bin/sleep 30

And then save and close.
2) Edit and change the count to "COUNT=40" (The 40 can be adjusted higher if more time is needed)
3) While in the file, change "sleep 1" to "sleep 5

And then save and close
