This article discusses the different zone types and the numbering schema for those zone types
Applies to: All Versions of Centrify DirectControl
With Centrify Zones, there are two aspects to a zone; zone type and zone schema.
Zones can have combinations of each aspect. For example, a Classic Zone can be SFU or RFC2307 compatible.
With Centrify Zones there is an associated number, as seen in the adinfo_support.txt file, to identify that zone type. Below is a list of those numbers and the associated zone types.
Classic Standard Zone with 3.x agent support
Classic Centrify Microsoft SFU Zone without 3.x agent support
Classic Centrify Microsoft SFU Zone with 3.x agent support
Classic Standard RFC2307 Compatible Zone with 3.x agent support
Classic Standard Zone without 3.x agent support
Classic Standard RFC2307 compatible zone without 3.x agent support
Hierarchical Standard Zone
Hierarchical Standard RFC2307 compatible Zone (Default Zone Type)
Hierarchical Centrify Microsoft SFU Zone
How user attribute data is stored for the different zone types:
In Standard Classic Zones, RFC2307Compatible Zones, and Hierarchical Zones, the users unix attributes are stored in a Service Connection Point (SCP) object which allow a user to have more than one unix profile and be a member of as many zones as needed. Those unix attributes are stored in their own individual attributes in the SCP object. (ie. uid, gidNumber, uidNumber, loginShell, etc.)
In SFU Zones, the unix attributes are stored in the users AD user object
