Centrify uses explicitly-defined NIS maps to generate derived maps automatically. Once a recognized base map is imported or created manually in Active Directory, the agent generates and stores its derived maps so that information can be retrieved searching on different keys.
Note: In most cases, you can import recognized base maps directly from an existing NIS server and domain or from generated text files (for example, files created using the niscat command). Alternatively, you can create the base maps manually using the corresponding map type in Access Manager.
The following table describes the recognized base maps and their derived maps.
