KB-8370: Normal local user cannot login successfully when dad stopped and NSS enabled without join to zone

Centrify DirectAudit ,  

19 May,17 at 06:40 PM

Applies to:
Centrify DC/DA Suite 2017 on all platforms

Problem:
Local user will not be able to login when all four consitions met:

1) both DirectControl and DirectAudit are installed
2) server is not joined to domain
3) DirectAudit NSS auditing enabled
4) DirectAudit agent, dad, is stopped

Cause:
When local user login and DirectControl agent cannot be communicated to determine the audit level, audit level will be set to 'audit required'.  Since DirectAudit agent is also not running, local user login will fail.   However, if a system is not joined to a domain, the default audit level should be "audit if possible".

Workaround:
Place local user in /etc/centrifydc/user.ignore file

Solution:
This will be fixed in future release
