Installing Mac group policies

Centrify group policies for Mac consist of two components:

  • The DirectControl agent for Mac and its associated configuration and system plug-in files that reside on the Mac computer. The DirectControl agent and related files determine the policies that have been applied to the local computer, or to the user who is logging on, and implement the policy through system preferences or other local configuration settings. This guide assumes that you have installed the DirectControl agent on your Mac computers.
  • An administrative template (.xml or .admx file) that describes the policy settings available to the Group Policy Management Editor. The administrative template must be installed on a Windows computer that has the Group Policy Management Editor and the Centrify Group Policy Management Editor Extension. The Group Policy Management Editor and the Centrify Group Policy Management Editor Extension must be available for you to enable and configure policies. See the Mac Quick Start Guide for more information.
