Added tip 4/5/2018:
It's best to match remote authentication timeout on FortiGate with timeout set in RADIUS server settings on Centrify. The default timeout on FortiGate is 5 seconds so we will increase to 60 to match Centrify.
Commands to run on FortiGate to accomplish this:
#config system global
#set remoteauthtimeout 60
