CentrifyDC Mode Down

Hello

 

After Installing Centrify 5.4 for Debian 8.7 .Everyting looks to be ok.  Once I restart, I am unable to login with domain accounts.  Logging in with a local account I notice that CentrifyDCMode is down .  This is not the case after the initial install, only happens after a restart. It takes like 5 mins to the centrfiydc mode to change to connected then i can login with the AD users.

 

just when i boot the PC:

 

adinfo
Local host name: user
Joined to domain: domain.local
Joined as: user.domain.local
Pre-win2K name: user
Current DC: serveur-active-directory.domain
Preferred site: Default-First-Site-Name
Zone: Auto Zone
CentrifyDC mode: down
Licensed Features: Disabled

 

then after some mins of waiting:

 

 When i type adinfo :

Joined to domain: s**.**a
Joined as: user.domain.local
Pre-win2K name: user

 

then it take 3 or 5 mins to show this informations:

 

Current DC: serveur-active-directory.domain.local
Preferred site: Default-First-Site-Name
Zone: Auto Zone
Last password set: 2017-03-22 21:51:32 CET

CentrifyDC mode: connected
Licensed Features: Disabled

 

 

i have  uninstalled and reinstalled centrify, and still the same issue. 

I clarified that there are no network issues, and dns is operating correctly.

I receive no error when joining the domain.

 

 

Any help would be greatly apprectiated.

In the previous output that you posted  (now deleted), adinfo --diag showed many environmental issues around DNS and unreachable Domain controllers.  Have those been fixed?

 

Also, is this a very large AD environment?  Remember that the Express method (Auto Zone) does have limits;  the behaviour you are describing sounds like adclient is talking time to build the cache which is expected if you have a large environment;  that is why for commercial organizations, Standard Edition is the way to go.
