Customizing configuration settings for a computer

You can configure many aspects of the environment for individual computers by applying a Group Policy Object to a site, domain, or organizational unit that includes managed computers and enabling Centrify-specific group policies. For example, you can use policies to customize PAM operations, the length of time to wait for connections between the Centrify UNIX agent and Active Directory, or how frequently to change the computer account password. For information about the group policies available and how to enable them, see the Group Policy Guide.

If you are not deploying Centrify group policies, you can also customize the configuration settings in any computer’s local agent configuration file, centrifydc.conf. The comments within the file describe the most common settings. For more information about setting the parameters directly in the agent configuration file, see the Configuration and Tuning Reference Guide.
