Editing the NSS configuration manually

To manually edit the NSS configuration, modify the /etc/nsswitch.conf file to include centrifydc as the first entry for the password and group lines as appropriate for your environment. For example:

passwd: centrifydc files
shadow: centrifydc files
group:  centrifydc files

By placing centrifydc at the beginning of each line, you ensure that Active Directory authentication takes precedence over other forms of authentication.
