Issue/Introduction

Sometimes, when logging in to a Unix endpoint using the Unix Authorization Broker (UnAB), we may need to validate the user against the local windows security instead of using the Active Directory one.

Can I force the user validation against the local security instead of the Active Directory one?

Environment

PAM Server Control 14.0  SP1 UnAB (Unix Authorization Broker)

Resolution

Use the command opt/CA/uxauth/bin/uxconsole -map <username> -local -force -v

-force
Specifies to force user mapping and overwrite existing mapping or migration status or delete user mapping

-local
Specifies to set the user account as a local exception. If you specify a user as local exception, UNIX Authentication Broker does not manage the user account, although an identical user account may exist in the Active Directory.
