Enabling Centrify policies

By default, all group policies, including Centrify group policies are set to Not configured. You can selectively enable the specific computer and user policies you want to use. Most of the Centrify group policies set configuration parameters on managed computers. If you choose to enable any of these group policies, you should be familiar with the corresponding configuration parameters described in the Configuration and Tuning Reference Guide.

To enable and configure Centrify settings:

  1. Open the Group Policy Management console.
  2. Select the Group Policy Object to which you have added Centrify policies, right-click, then select Edit.
  3. Expand Computer Configuration > Policies > Centrify Settings.
  4. Select a policy name, right-click, then select Properties.
  5. Click Enabled.

    Depending on the policy, you might need to select values or provide other information to complete the configuration. For more information about the policy and how to set configuration options, click the Explain tab. For information about limitations to the values that you specify, see Centrify policy limitations later in this chapter.

  6. Click Apply after making the change.

The policies you enable are applied when computers in the site, domain, or organizational units are rebooted, users next log on, or at the next update interval.
