AgentlessAttribute

Gets or sets the Active Directory attribute used for storing the user’s password hash if a zone supports agentless NIS client requests.

Syntax

string AgentlessAttribute {get; set;}

Property value

The Active Directory attribute used for storing the user’s password hash.

Discussion

If you have any computers configured to respond to NIS client requests using information stored in Active Directory, this property must be set to enable password synchronization for the zone. Only the following values are valid:

  • altSecurityIdentities
  • msSFU30Password
  • unixUserPassword

Setting this property to an invalid value disables password synchronization.

Exceptions

AgentlessAttribute throws an ApplicationException if the selected attribute cannot store a password hash.

Example

The following code sample illustrates setting this property in a script:

...
'Specify the zone you want to work with
set zone = cims.GetZone("zap.org/Program Data/Centrify/Zones/default")
'Change the attribute used for the password hash
zone.AgentlessAttribute = "unixUserPassword"
zone.Commit()
...
