KB-8973: Is the k5login_directory configurable

Centrify DirectControl ,  

21 July,17 at 11:09 PM

Applies to: Centrify Direct Control 2017.1 and above on all supported platforms

Question:
Is it possible to change the location of a user's .k5login file? 

Answer:
Yes, in /etc/centrifydc/centrifydc.conf please refer to the following parameter:
krb5.conf.k5login.directory
 
This parameter specifies an alternative location for a user’s .k5login files. It has no default setting. If it is not set, the user’s .k5login file will be set as {%home_dir}

/.k5login. If it is set to, say, <k5login_directory>, the user’s .k5login file will be set as <k5login_directory>/<user’s unixname>.
