Supported zone types

Standard Centrify zones use the default data storage model. However, Centrify can also support the RFC 2307 data model if you are using the Microsoft RFC 2307 schema extension, or the Microsoft Services for UNIX (SFU) data model if you are using that schema extension. To support these schema extensions, you can choose the zone type you want to use for each zone.

The following table lists the supported zone types and the relationship between the zone type and the Active Directory schema.

Zone type Active Directory schema

Classic Centrify zones, versions 2.x, 3.x, and 4.x

Any schema

Hierarchical standard zones, version 5.x or later

Any schema

Classic RFC 2307-compatible zones, versions 2.x, 3.x, and 4.x

RFC 2307-compliant schema

Hierarchical RFC 2307‑compatible zones, version 5.x or later

RFC 2307-compliant schema

SFU-compatible zones, version 3.5

Microsoft Services for UNIX (SFU), version 3.5

SFU-compatible zones, version 4.0

Windows Services for UNIX (SFU), version 4.00

Note:   Classic RFC 2307-compatible zones require Active Directory Dynamic Auxiliary Classes. The forest functional level must be at least Windows Server 2003 to use Dynamic Auxiliary Classes. All hierarchical zones require the domain functional level to be at least Windows Server 2003.
