Implementing custom group policies

You can define your own custom group policies for Centrify-managed computers and users and add these custom group policies to existing or new Group Policy Objects. Custom group policies consist of:

  • A custom administrative template (.xml) file that describes how to set the policy within the Group Policy Object Editor. For example, the Administrative Template describes the user interface presented to the administrator on Windows computer.
  • A program or script that makes the appropriate settings for the computer or the user logging on. For example, you can create a Perl script that reads the group policy settings and modifies the appropriate UNIX configuration file to reflect those settings.
