Set user name conflict message

Specify the message displayed if a user name conflict is detected during login. This message is displayed if there is a local user with the same UID but a different user name than the Active Directory user logging on.

When the message is displayed, the %s token in the message string is replaced with the name of the conflicting local account. The message string you define must contain exactly one %s token, and no other string replacement (%) characters.

The default message is "Account with conflicting name (%s) exists locally".

This group policy modifies the pam.account.conflict.name.mesg setting in the Centrify DirectControl configuration file.
