Centrify for UNIX/Linux/Mac Command Line Cheat Sheet

AD-bridging commands ("ad" commands)
adcheck - check OS, network and AD readiness for Centrify DirectControl

To check the system with domain (e.g.
$ adcheck
To only perform OS checks
$ adcheck --test os
To only perform network-related tests
$ adcheck --test net
To only perform AD-related tests
$ adcheck --test ad
To check the system with a service domain controller (e.g. dc1)
$ adcheck --servername dc1
To check connectivity only with DCs within the site
$ adcheck --siteonly
To check only on 3 (or n) DCs in a large domain
$ adcheck --bigdommain 3
To check trust relationships (e.g. with
$ adcheck --xdomain
To skip NTP checking (if you are not doing sync with AD DCs)
$ adcheck --skip-ntp

adinfo:  provides information about the status of the agent

Looking-up Basic Information
To check the general status of the client
$ adinfo
To see the current domain controller the client is using
$ adinfo --server
To see the current domain the agent is joined to
$ adinfo --domain
To see the status (mode) of the agent (connected to ad or in offline mode)

$ adinfo --version
To see the corresponding Centrify Suite Version
$ adinfo --suite-version
To view Active Directory connectivity to the current domain
$ adinfo --test
To view the current Active Directory site
$ adinfo --site
To see the current joined Centrify zone
$ adinfo --zone

To refresh the krb5.conf file
$ dzdo adflush --trusts
To clear the health history
$ dzdo adflush --health
To clear the cloud connectors (in MFA scenarios)
$ dzdo adflush --connectors

Group Policy-related Commands
adgpupdate - triggers the group policy refresh interval

To refresh the GPOs in the system
$ adgpupdate
To refresh only computer GPOs
$ adgpupdate --target Computer
To refresh only user GPOs
$ adgpupdate --target User

adgpresult - to view a RSOP (resultant set of policy) to the local system or user

$ adgpresult
To view the report for the computer
$ adgpresult --computer
To view the report for the current
$ adgpresult --user
To view the report for a particular user
$ dzdo adgpresult --user []

Joining Active Directory
adjoin - joins an Active Directory domain

To run adjoin successfully, you need
> to be root or sudo
> to have the credentials (or the keytab) of an AD user that can join computers to a container (NOT Domain Admin)
> to know the Distinguished Name (e.g. "ou=servers,ou=unix") of the container that you will place the system in AD
> to know the domain name you're joining
> to have a clear network path to the DC or DCs you're using (dns, global catalog, kerberos, ldap, cifs, ntp).

To join AD in workstation/express mode (AD user must be able to add computers to "ou=workstations,ou=unix")
$ sudo adjoin --workstation --container "ou=workstations,ou=unix" --user [AuthorizedADUser] --verbose []
To join AD in Self-Service mode (AD/Centrify admin pre-created the machine ahead of time using AM or Centrify PS)
$ sudo adjoin --selfserve []
To join AD in zone mode (e.g. Global zone)
$ sudo adjoin --zone Global --container "ou=servers,ou=unix" --user [AuthorizedADUser] --verbose []
To join AD in zone mode and don't initialize (precache)
$ sudo adjoin --noinit --zone Global --container "ou=servers,ou=unix" --user [AuthorizedADUser] --verbose []
To join AD and trust the Computer for Delegation (must know what you're doing - security implications)
$ sudo adjoin --trust Global --container "ou=servers,ou=unix" --user [AuthorizedADUser] --verbose []
To join AD in workstation mode and specify a workstation license
$ sudo adjoin --licensetype "workstation"--workstation --container "ou=workstations,ou=unix" --user [AuthorizedADUser] --verbose []
To use an specific domain controller to join (e.g.
$ sudo adjoin --server Global --container "ou=servers,ou=unix" --user [AuthorizedADUser] --verbose []
To join a Mac in Workstation mode and instruct Centrify to use the Apple algorighm to generate UID/GID scheme
$ sudo adjoin --enableAppleIDGenScheme --container "ou=macs,ou=unix" --user [AuthorizedADUser] --verbose []
To join AD and provide a different "AD name" than the local system name (e.g. adserver vs. localhost)
$ sudo adjoin --name adserver --container "ou=servers,ou=unix" --user [AuthorizedADUser] --verbose []
To join AD using keytab (kinit Authorized AD user keytab first, then run adjoin without the --user option)
$ env KRB5_CONFIG=[/path/to/krb5.conf] /usr/share/centrifydc/kerberos/bin/kinit -kt /path/to/keytab [principal]
$ sudo adjoin --zone Global --container "ou=servers,ou=unix" --verbose []

Leaving Active Directory
adleave - leaves an Active Directory domain

To run adleave succesfully, you neeed:
> sudo or root
> for online leave, authorized AD user credentials

Leave the domain and disable the computer object (orphan object left behind)
$ dzdo adleave --user [Authorized ADUsername]
Leave the domain and remove computer object (frees license)
$ dzdo adleave --user [Authorized ADUsername] --remove
Offline/forced leave (no AD connectivity required, must clean-up in AD)
$ dzdo adleave --force

Privilege Elevation ("dz" commands)
dzinfo - displays information of the user's access controls

To view self access (all)
$ dzinfo
To view the properties of the role(s), including effectiveness
$ dzinfo --roles
To view how you can access the system (PAM rights)
$ dzinfo --pam
To view the commands you can run
$ dzinfo --commands
To view the computer roles that apply to the system (requires elevation)
$ dzinfo --computer-role
To view authorization information about about another user (requires elevation)
$ dzdo dzinfo []
To test a command against the role
$ dzinfo --test [path/to/binary] [options]

Centrify-enhanced sudo
dzdo - centrify-enhanced sudo. Uses Centrify zone data in AD for commands, otherwise identical to sudo.

To view version information (as of 2015, based on sudo 1.8.10p3)
$ dzdo -V
Use man sudo or man dzdo for more.

DirectAudit Commands ("da" commands)
dainfo - shows information about the status of the audit agent

To view the audit agent status
$ dainfo
To view status with verbose output
$ dainfo --diag  (or dadiag)
To view contents of the configuration file
$ dainfo --config
To view audited status of another user (must elevate)
$ dzdo dainfo --username lisa.simpson

dacontrol - controls the status/configuration of the directaudit client (requires elevation)

To set the installation (if not set by Group Policy)
$ dzdo dacontrol --installation [installation-name]
To check if the audit agent is enabled
$ dzdo dacontrol --query
To enable direct audit
$ dzdo dacontrol --enable
To disable direct audit
$ dzdo dacontrol --disable

What happens when adjoin is run succesfully?
This activates the DirectControl agent (adclient/CentrifyDC service).
1. Creates a computer object in AD and sets SPNs for http, host, nfs, cifs, afpserver
2. Establishes a secure communication channel between the system and Active Directory
3. A forest/domain/site map is created to locate the nearest DCs
4. The Kerberos environment (krb5.conf, krb5.keytab) are maintained by Centrify (configurable).  A backup is created.
5. Network time is synchronized with AD DCs (configurable)
6. The PAM (Pluggable Authentication Modules) are modified to include Centrify auth, account, password, session modules. A back-up of the previous configuration is made.
7. The NSS (Name Service Switch) providers for users and groups defaults to AD first, then other methods (e.g. files, ldap, etc).  A backup of the previous configuration is made.
Note: in the OS X platform, the PAM/NSS functions are channeled via the Directory Services Plugin API.
8. An Access Control Model is enforced depending on the zone mode:
- In zone mode:  Authorization (RBAC) follows zone rules (defaults to closed, only authorized users can access and enabled groups are visible)
- In express/workstation mode:  Only Authentication is facilitated.  The system is open for all AD users and all groups are visible.
9. Privilege Elevation:  Centrify-enhanced sudo (dzdo) becomes active based on the roles/rights defined.
10. User/Group identity (RFC2307) data in AD is stored within the Centrify zone, NOT with the user/group object.
11. The virtual registry is initialized and group policies are enforced.

What happens when adleave is run succesfully?
1. Online the --remove object:  The object in AD is removed from the container and from the zone (frees license)
2. Online the without --remove object:  The object in AD is marked as disabled.  Must be ovewritten to rejoin.
2. Offline:  The object in AD is left orphaned.  Cleanup must happen via any Centrify API (AM, PowerShell, adedit)
3. The UNIX environment is reset and rolled back (Kerberos, PAM, NSS)
4. The Centrify adclient (CentrifyDC) service is disabled.

  1. There is a reason why I bought a Mac, it was not to be one of the cool kids that wanted the best of the best. No it was because of the music production I do on it. Hours and hours sitting in front of my Mac copying, pasting, moving, deleting, hour after hour just beating on my Mac in a endless assault to get my work done. That is the key part, my work. I work from home, it is great, but even if it is from home it is still work and it still needs to get done. So my Mac, I have it because it is fast, gets the job done and comes back for more.
    But what happens when it doesn't want to do those things anymore?
    I move around massive amounts of information and yes even on the almighty Mac this can cause a problem after a while. Things fragment, programs get corrupted issues come up. My light speed Mac slows down to a crawl and all of the sudden I simply can not get any work done. Because I work from home there is no IT guy to call and ask to come fix it. No instead I have to figure out what is wrong. I am lucky, I did, but not after trying everything under the sun first and wasting countless hours looking for one program that can do what I needed instead of ten programs. One program to lead them all….okay that was a lame Lord of the rings reference, but that program was/is Detox My Mac. A simple to use program that did not just fix my issues, it put my Mac on overdrive again. A few clicks and my Mac was clean and ready to rock and roll again.
