Centrify Administration organizational unit

The Centrify Administration OU is intended to store Active Directory security groups that ensure the separation of duties and the segregation of Centrify-related administrative operations in Active Directory.

In most cases, you will want to allow your existing Active Directory account fulfillment or provisioning team to edit UNIX groups and, potentially, the user role groups that allow for elevated permissions in UNIX. If users you have identified as Centrify Administrators are stored in the same organizational unit as the rest of the UNIX groups, then members of the fulfillment or provisioning team could grant themselves permissions to create, modify, and delete zones. With these permissions, a disgruntled provisioning staff member could delete one or more zones and prevent access to production computers. To prevent this security risk, Centrify recommends you create a separate Centrify Administration organizational unit and protect access to it.
