If they support RHEL, then they must be able to support Centos. Centos
is RHEL recompiled with the names changed.

Centrify seems to be running Samba in a way that we cannot support.

I could tell you how to 'rip' Centrify out of your setup, but there
are problems with doing this, the main one is that your users will
undoubtedly end up with different numeric ID's.

I personally do not see why anybody would pay to use Centrify, when
winbind will do the same thing for free.
