Using Active Directory groups for roles

For most organizations, the most efficient way to manage role assignment is by adding users to Active Directory groups, then managing those groups. Therefore, for management purposes, a Centrify access role should always be linked to an Active Directory security group. The Active Directory groups that identify the users in specific Centrify user roles are stored in the User Roles organizational unit. All of the users in a specific role group will share a common set of rights under UNIX. You can then use machine-level overrides for handling edge cases for individual computers.
