Best Practices for Unix, Linux, and Mac OS X

The following are recommend best practices for using PowerBroker Identity Services in Unix, Linux, and Mac OS X environments.

Any time SSH is upgraded, domainjoin-cli configure --enable ssh should be run to verify the sshd_config file is set up properly to work with PBIS.

After any major upgrade (kernel patch, operating system upgrade, or similar upgrade) is performed, a full rejoin to the domain should be performed. This will verify that all OS-specific files are configured properly, and will also update the "operatingSystemVersion" and "operatingSystemServicePack" values in Active Directory so that the PBIS Reporting (or other reporting) system can accurately reflect the environment.

It is recommended that all vendor patches be applied according to the vendor’s schedule.

The following are additional best practices.
