If DNS resolution is not allowed in some use cases, is it possible to work with Centrify DirectControl agent in the environment?
The answer is YES if properly configured, adclient can operate without a working DNS server.
Here are the prerequisites,
1. Configuring dns.dc and dns.gc parameters in /etc/centrifydc/centrifydc.conf to enumerate usable domain controllers (DC) and global catalogs (GC).
2. Configuring ALL the required FQDN and IP addresses in /etc/hosts file.
