Please remember that the fall back for finding out what group policies are being applied is to go the /var/centrifydc/reg on the file system. This is where the Centrify Agent creates a virtual registry.   You will find the machine policies in gp.report file in the machine subfolder and the user policies in gp.report file in the user/$User subfolder.
