Description

The Mac group policy, Map /home to /Users is defined in the centrifydc_settings.xml file, not in centrify_mac_settings.xml, and is in Centrify Settings, not in Mac Settings.

To enable or disable this policy, click Computer Configuration > Policies > Centrify Settings > DirectControl Settings > Adclient Settings.

On some versions of Mac OS X, /home is an automount point. If a zone user’s home directory is set to /home/username, the operating system cannot create the home directory and the user cannot log in. Therefore, you should not specify /home/username as the home directory for any Mac users, but since this is a typical UNIX home directory, there may be Active Directory users who have a /home/username home directory. To avoid potential problems, enable this group policy, Map /home to /Users, to configure Centrify to change /home/username to /Users/username (the default Mac home directory). If you do not enable this policy, the change does not take effect.

This policy modifies the adclient.mac.map.home.to.users parameter in the Centrify configuration file.
