Permissions required to use the Setup Wizard

In most cases, you run the Setup Wizard to guide you through the configuration of Active Directory for Centrify. The Setup Wizard updates Active Directory with Centrify-specific objects and properties, including zone and license containers that are required for proper operation.

To successfully perform initialization tasks, the user account that runs the Setup Wizard must have specific rights. Because some of these rights might be reserved for administrative accounts, some users might be prevented from performing certain steps in the Setup Wizard.

To allow other user accounts to run the Setup Wizard, you can manually create the appropriate container objects, then assign to those objects only the specific permissions needed to correctly complete the configuration of Centrify-specific objects. Users can then use the Setup Wizard to select the appropriate container objects and perform all of the necessary steps without being members of an administrative group.
