Centrify Client supported platforms

Centrify Client software has been optimized to work with public and private cloud workloads for 64-bit Windows Server and 64-bit Linux Distributions and Linux Containers (LXC) listed below. For specific version information, please see the release notes.

64-bit Windows Server

  • Windows Server 2012 R2

  • Windows Server 2016

  • Windows Server 2019

  • Windows Server 2022

64-bit Windows workstation

  • Windows 10

Note:   For Windows workstations, client features such as client-based login (also called Agent Auth), application to application password management (AAPM), and delegated machine credentials are not supported.

64-bit Linux Distributions


  • Debian 9, 10, 11

  • Ubuntu 18.04, 20.04

RedHat Linux:

  • CentOS 7, 8

  • RedHat Linux 7, 8

  • Oracle Linux 7.8

  • Amazon Linux


  • SLES 12-SP3, 15-SP1

64-bit Linux Container

  • Alpine Linux

    For Alpine Linux systems, be aware of the following:

    • Alpine Linux is not designed to call the "create home dir" function; so, that means that users will be able to login but they will not have a home directory like on other Linux platforms.

    • You may need to make sure that UsePAM and ChallengeResponseAuthentication are both set to yes in the /etc/ssh/sshd_config files.

    • The NSS service doesn't have an /etc/nsswitch.conf file like on other Linux platforms, so you will need to create the /etc/nsswitch.conf file manually.

ARM Linux Distributions

  • RHEL 7.6 and higher
