Adclient settings

Use the group policies under Adclient Settings to control the operation of the agent on managed computers.

Some of these policies are platform-specific policies that control whether the agent can automatically edit specific files on the local computer. In most cases, you should enable the policies that allow the agent to maintain configuration files automatically.

If you choose to not enable any of the platform-specific policies, you must manually edit the appropriate configuration files on individual computers. For example, if not configuring files automatically through a group policy, you must manually edit the /etc/nsswitch.conf and /etc/pam.d/system-auth or /etc/pam.d files to include adclient information or authentication through Active Directory will fail and you may disable login access entirely. For more information about updating configuration files manually, see “Customizing adclient configuration parameters” in the Configuration and Tuning Reference Guide.

Note:   Several Auto Zone group policies are located within the Adclient Settings node. For details about Auto Zone group policies, see Auto Zone group policies.
