Set UID conflict message

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

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

If this policy is not enabled, the default message is "Account with conflicting UID (%d) exists locally".

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