Ansible CentrifyDC Express playbook

By on February 10, 2017 in Technology with No Comments

The following Ansible playbook will install CentrifyDC express via yum or rpm depending on the OS. The CentrifyDC express package allows you bind Linux servers to your Active Directory server. This will allow you to ssh to your Linux servers using your AD credentials and use AD groups for sudoers access. It comes in pretty handy if you want to manage Linux accounts in one central place versus managing local accounts on each Linux server.
