Use version specific settings


User Configuration > Policies > Centrify Settings > Mac OS X Settings > Security & Privacy Settings > System Preference Settings > Use version specific settings


Enable the use of version-specific System Preferences settings.

If you enable this policy, you can then set platform-specific preferences settings for each platform in your environment. For example, if you have only 10.10 computers, you can enable this policy and then use Mac OS X 10.10 settings. If you have 10.9 and 10.10 computers, enable this policy, and then configure the version-specific policies as appropriate:

  • Mac OS X 10.9 Settings
  • Mac OS X 10.10 Settings

When a computer joins the domain, Centrify Management Services determines the OS version and applies the appropriate Preferences settings.

If this policy is disabled or not configured, Legacy Settings are used instead of version-specific settings. Likewise, Centrify versions prior to 4.4.2 always use Legacy Settings and ignore this policy setting.

If you configured System Preferences settings with a version of the product prior to 4.4.2, these settings are saved to Legacy Settings when you upgrade to the current version. You can keep or edit these settings as you wish.

Note:   The Legacy Settings may not match exactly the settings for each OS version; for example, some settings may be missing while others may be redundant for a particular OS version.
