KB-9788: ZPA - Home Directory option is not specified

12 February,18 at 11:34 AM

Applies to: All version of Centrify Infrastructure Services before Suite 2018

When Zone Provisioning is configured in Hierarchical zone, the following error prompt when running ZPA / zoneupdate during provisioning users:
Failed to provision user<> . Error: Home Directory option is not specified.

The Home Directory Option is specified actually:
HomeDirectoryOption: ZoneDefault
The log message is misleading which it actually points to both the Home Directory Option and GECOS. Therefore, the error came from gecos which is not specified:

Please check if both Gecos Option & HomeDirectoryOption is specified.

The error message will be corrected in Suite 2018.
