·         Centrify DirectAudit delivers auditing, logging and real-time monitoring of user activity on your Windows, UNIX and Linux system.

·         Centrify DirectManage is an integrated set of administration and management tools that centralize the discovery, management and user administration of UNIX and Linux systems through integration into Active Directory-based tools and processes.

·         Centrify DirectSecure is a policy-based software solution that secures sensitive information by dynamically isolating and protecting cross-platform systems and enabling optional end-to-end encryption of data in motion.

 

Built on a common architecture, the seamlessly integrated Centrify Suite of solutions helps you improve IT efficiency, strengthen regulatory compliance initiatives, and centrally secure your heterogeneous computing environment.

 

This Centrify Suite release includes packages for Windows, UNIX, Linux, and Mac OS X operating system environments.

7.   Known Issues

 

The following sections describe common known issues or limitations associated with this release of Centrify Suite.

 

In addition to the known issues described in this section, you should review the details in the appropriate suite component release-notes.txt file and in the platform-specific release-notes-agent.txt file for the operating environments you support.

 

·         ADcheck reports failure on mount check when run using sudo

 

ADcheck should be run by root, and one way to do this is for a non-root user to use sudo, for example:

 

sudo adcheck-<platform> -t os

 

If the user running sudo does not have /usr/sbin set in the path then the MOUNT check will fail, reporting that some filesystems in /etc/fstab are either not mounted or mounted improperly.

 

·         Install.sh may fail on Ubuntu 10.04 and later

 

With Ubuntu 10.04 and later, installation of Centrify Suite may fail with a dependency for x11-ssh-askpass. If you encounter this issue you should restart Centrify Suite installation using the Custom (C) option, installing all necessary packages except Centrify OpenSSH. Then install Centrify OpenSSH separately using the dpkg package manager and specifying the --force-depends option on the command line.

 

·         Upgrade Zone Provisioning Agent (ZPA) may show an error window

 

Under some conditions, "1628: Failed to complete installation." error window may display if ZPA is upgraded via the ZPA installer in the DirectManage32/64 folder.  You need to uninstall ZPA and install it again. Auto-run does not show this error.
