linux joined domain but username saved as number

We have ubunto 16.04 , we could join Domain using centrify express .

When I went to gdm windows  ,  users could authenticate  correctly .but some usernames appeared as numbers not names.

 

Example;

 

after joining the domain  , I went to gdm windows to let users authenticate

 

username : john

Password :  xxxxxxx

 

John could authenticate ,but his name appeared as  6400 ,and saved  his home directory  with 6400

 

 

Kindly advice

Re: linux joined domain but username saved as number

@NaglaaELDeeb,

 

Welcome to the Centrify Express forum.

 

Can you please let me know what is the Centrify Express (DirectControl) version?

In a terminal, type adinfo -v

 

In addition, can you please show me the output of:

a) John exists as a local user in the /etc/passwd file

grep john /etc/passwd

b) What is the identity being generated?

adquery user john

 

Thanks,

 

R.P
