rpm -q --queryformat %{VERSION} nss-tools

Does anyone know why CentrifyDC client runs "rpm -q --queryformat %{VERSION} nss-tools" query frequently on Linux servers?

@Mauri,

 

Welcome to the Centrify forums.

 

Outstanding question!

 

By making this query, we're trying to find out if the name service cache daemon (NSCD) is installed on the system.  Although this is not a requirements, having NSCD is usually a best practice to have with any NSS-enabled application (like ours).

@Mauri,

 

Since this is a check we have to make to determine our behavior, I don't think there's an option to get rid of it.

Is there a specific reason why you want to get rid of this?
