Installing the Centrify Client for Linux package

After you download a Centrify Client for Linux, you can use a native package manager to install the commands, man pages, and sample scripts included in the package. For example, if you downloaded the package that supports Red Hat, CentOS, and Oracle distributions of Linux, you would run a command similar to the following on the Linux computer:

rpm -Uvh CentrifyCC-rhel6.x86_64.rpm

After you install the package using a native package manager, you can find the command line programs and sample scripts in the /usr/bin and /usr/sbin directory. For examples of how you can use the command-line programs in scripts to manage passwords for local or privileged accounts, see the sample scripts included in the /opt/centrify/samples directory.
