1. Can you login as local account with "sudo" privilege?

If yes, then login and check /var/log/messages and /var/log/secure for the login messages for clues.

Besides, since you using commerical product, Centrify, have you try to check on there support website to look for clue to get support?

As my experience, you might want to check with Kerbos setting and credential.
