Root access on RHEL systems using RSA authentication

I am integrating Red Hat 8.x workstations and servers into my AD Domain environment.  I am using Centrify as the solution for RHEL to AD integration to provide centralized password authentication.  Now I am adding RSA on top of this.  I have the RSA system working correctly with Centrify and RHEL.  However, I no longer log in locally as root.  I can log in as a domain user with my RSA passcode, open a prompt and su to root.  I am not aware of any local security settings that prohibit local root login in my environment.  

 

What steps must be taken to allow local root login?
