CoreOS installation directory differences

When you complete the installation, the local computer will be updated with the following directories and files for the CentrifyDC packages:

UNIX directory CoreOS directory Contains

/etc/centrifydc

(same)

The agent configuration file (centrifydc.conf) and the Kerberos configuration file

/usr/share/centrifydc

/opt/centrify

Program, libraries, and other files installed by both the CentrifyDC and CentrifyDA packages

/usr/sbin

/opt/centrify/sbin

Command line programs to perform Active Directory tasks

/usr/bin

/opt/centrify/bin

Command line programs to perform Active Directory tasks

/var/centrify

(same)

Directories for temporary and common files that can be used by the agent

/var/centrifydc

Before joining the domain, the directory contains basic information about the environment, such as the IP address of the DNS server.

After you join the domain, several files are added to this directory to record information about the Active Directory domain the computer is joined to, the Active Directory site the computer is part of, and other details.

Depending on the components you select during installation, additional files and directories might be installed or updated. For example, if you install the CentrifyDA packages, the computer is updated with additional files and directories for auditing.
