Specify NIS daemon update interval

Specify the interval, in seconds, that the adnisd daemon waits between connections to Active Directory.

At each interval, the adnisd daemon connects to Active Directory, gets the latest NIS maps for the local computer's zone, and updates its local NIS map data store.

The value must be an integer equal to or greater than zero. If the value is zero, then the update interval is disabled and the local NIS map data store is not updated. The default value is 1800 seconds (30 minutes).

This group policy modifies the nisd.update.interval setting in the Centrify DirectControl configuration file.
