Server Suite 2023.1 Release Notes

The Delinea Server Suite (previously called Centrify Infrastructure Services, or Centrify Zero Trust Privilege Services) is an integrated family of directory-based authentication, privileged access, privileged elevation, audit & monitoring solutions that secure your cross-platform environment and strengthen regulatory compliance initiatives.

Server Suite includes the following components: 

  • The Authentication Service secures your platforms using the same authentication and Group Policy services deployed for your Windows environment.

  • The Privilege Elevation Service centrally manages and enforces role-based entitlements for fine-grained control of user access and privileges on UNIX, Linux, and Windows systems.

  • The Audit & Monitoring Service delivers auditing, logging, and real-time monitoring of the user activity on your Windows, UNIX, and Linux system.

This integrated solution helps you improve IT efficiency, strengthen regulatory compliance initiatives, and centrally secure your heterogeneous computing environment.

These release notes cover information specifically regarding Authentication Service, Privilege Elevation Service, and Audit & Monitoring Service.

Server Suite and its component services have been changed to use the new Delinea name and logo.

Known Issues

  • After applying the February 14, 2023, Microsoft Update (KB5022842 (OS Build 20348.1547)) on a Virtualized Windows Server 2022 with Secure Boot Enabled server will become unusable.

    This issue is reproducible without any Delinea products installed on the Windows Server 2022 system.

    The issue arises on the second reboot after installing Microsoft update KB5022842 on Windows Server 2022 that is running on VMWare vSphere ESXi 6.7 U2/U3 or vSphere ESXi 7.0.x. Delinea recommends as a best practice to create system restore points prior to doing any upgrades, patches or system change.
