Enable Centrify Agent to read UID and GID from Centrify DirectManage Access Manager


We purchased Centrify Standard and setup the DirectManage Access Manager. Next we proceed to install the client agent on the compute node.

After unpacking and installing the agent, when we do a

# getent passwd  |grep kittycool
kittycool:x:1304567321211:1304567321211:kittycool:/home/kittycool:/bin/bash
kittycool:x:10001:10001:kittycool:/home/kittycool:/bin/bash

Apparently, the getent passwd |grep kittycool is pulling both the Active Directory UID and the DirectManage Access and the user UID differs

To resolve this issue, you need to specify the zone which is used by DirectManage Access Manager, so your UID of the user will pick from the DirectManage Access Manager.

# adjoin -z cluster -u OU_Administrator  staff.mycompany.com.sg -c "staff.mycompany.com.sg/HPC/Computers"

To check it is displaying the correct UID and GID,

# getent passwd  |grep kittycool
kittycool:x:10001:10001:kittycool:/home/kittycool:/bin/bash
