| Issue||Inheritance anomaly - Alsid for AD does not support the addition or deletion of (automatically) Inherited Rights|
| Component impacted||Ceti|
| Version impacted||2.7.0 - 2.7.1 - 2.7.2|
| Solution offered||workaround|

The Microsoft Access Rights Model includes an inheritance model  for setting permissions on a specific container and automatically applying them to all child containers. This is the case with Active Directory and many MS products.
With AD, a specific process named SDProp is responsible for automatically setting the inherited permissions on each of the child item's security descriptors.
When this happens, the legacy ACE has the ADS_ACEFLAG_INHERIT_ACE flag set. This process is executed whenever a new legacy ACE is defined with a potential delay of up to 20 min. To force the SDProp process to run, administrators can create a trigger named runProtectAdminGroupsTask . The SDProp runs in a thread of the NtdsDsa service on each Windows server hosting a domain controller.
Known Issue 2.7.0 - 2.7.1 - 2.7.2 - 3.0
Our anomaly is related to the functioning of SDProp. Because it has direct access to the AD database, when SDProp applies a new legacy ACE, it does not create any changes on the object except for updating the security descriptor. In particular, the usnChanged attribute is not changed. Therefore, Ceti does not receive any new events from the Replication API, preventing us from having the real value of the SDDL.
- Actual Behavior: Rights automatically inherited aren't caught by our product.
How and where
The only viable workaround found at this point is to restart Ceti to re-scan all security descriptors.
Resolution criteria :
- On-premise: Restart alsid_ceti service on your Directory Listener
