Situation:  Windows 2008R2 network with two MacMini clients.  Network authentication has been with native tools, not using 3rd party apps like Centrify.  Now a user, on his own, upgraded the OS on his Mac, and cannot bind to Active Directory.

Centrify site touts 'day one' support for Yosemite, but all in the context of upgrading existing Centrify installations for Yosemite BEFORE upgrading the OS to Yosemite.  

Question:  Can I install Centrify on a Mac that already is upgraded to Yosemite, and are there some precise steps to follow in doing so?

Have you checked with them about support even if you went the other way?  I would assume that they test their installs no matter how someone upgrades their system.  They may have better clues and tips on what you need to do.

Yes,  I did that. They said I could, and recommended their free Express version, since the minimum license for the flagship version version is 25 machines and I only have two.  thanks for you suggestion.  I should have done that in the first place;  I'm in such a habit of always going to Experts-Exchange first.
