Adding support for agentless clients

If you are using the Centrify Network Information Service (adnisd) on a managed computer to respond to NIS client requests from computers where the Centrify agent cannot be installed, you can configure one or more zones to act as the NIS domain for those client requests.

To add support for agentless NIS clients in a zone

  1. Open Access Manager.
  2. Expand Zones and the individual parent or child zones, as required, to locate and select the zone name for which you want to display properties.
  3. Right-click, then click Properties to display the General tab.
  4. Select the Support agentless client option.
  5. Select the Active Directory attribute you want to use to store the password hash and verify the zone name is the NIS domain name you want to use or type a new name, then click OK.

For more information about installing and using the Centrify Network Information Service (adnisd) to respond to NIS client requests and configuring agentless clients, see the Network Information Service Administrator’s Guide.
