This configuration parameter specifies a cloud connector to use in the current Active Directory forest. This parameter enables you to explicitly designate the cloud connector to use for connections between Centrify-managed Linux and UNIX computers and the cloud instance providing cloud authentication services.

By default, adclient will automatically select the most appropriate cloud connector to use based on network topology. You can use this parameter, however, to manually specify the IP address or fully-qualified domain name of the cloud connector you want connections to go through. By designating a cloud connector, adclient will use that cloud connector and won't do automatic discovery to other connectors.

For example, to specify the cloud connector by IP address:

To specify the cloud connector using the fully-qualified domain name:

Note that port 8080 is the default port for cloud connectors to use.
