Working with the authorization cache on managed computers

Authorization information—such as your rights, role definitions, and assignments—is cached locally on each computer where you have deployed the Centrify Agent for Windows. The cache saves access privilege information to improve performance and also to persist elevated privilege capabilities for users and groups when the computer is not connected to Active Directory.

The following sections describe:

  • Which Centrify Authentication Service, Privilege Elevation Service, and Audit & Monitoring Service capabilities are and are not persisted by the cache when a computer is disconnected from a domain controller.
  • Where the cache resides.
  • How and when to perform cache operations such as refreshing, flushing, and dumping.
