Installing Centrify group policy templates

When you install Access Manager using the installation wizard and you specify that all components be installed, the Centrify group policy templates are included in the installation. See “Install Access Manager and update Active Directory” in the Administrator’s Guide for Windows for details about using the Access Manager installation wizard.

Note:   For details about where the Centrify group policy templates reside after they are installed, see Adding Centrify policies from XML files.

Because Centrify group policy templates and extensions are packaged separately from other Access Manager components, you have the following options if you prefer to install group policy templates and extensions separately from Access Manager:

  • You can install Centrify group policy templates and extensions on any Windows domain computer without also installing Access Manager on the computer.
  • You can install Access Manager on any Windows domain computer without also installing Centrify group policy templates and extensions on the computer.

The group policy template and extension package has its own .exe and .msi installer files, so that you can install group policy templates and extensions interactively through an installation wizard (by executing the .exe file) or silently from the command line (by executing the .msi file). Additionally, you can select or de-select the group policy template and extension component for installation when you run the Access Manager installation wizard.

For details about installing group policy templates and extensions separately from Access Manager, see “Install group policy extensions separately from Access Manager” in the Administrator’s Guide for Windows.
