How ADEdit works with other Centrify components
ADEdit is part Centrify Authentication Service, Privilege Elevation Service, and Audit & Monitoring Service and works with specific Windows and UNIX components of the Centrify architecture. As described in the Administrator’s Guide for Linux and UNIX, Centrify uses Active Directory, which runs in a Windows network, to stores Centrify-specific data such as zone information. To make computers part of an Active Directory domain, administrators deploy a platform-specific Centrify agent. After the agent is deployed and the computer joins an Active Directory domain, the computer is a Centrify-managed computer and ADEdit can define, retrieve, modify, and delete Active Directory and Centrify information for that computer.
