We have User-ID agent setup and running, Where it polls the machines every 20 minutes, to track the users.
Since we are now trying to implement Power management on the Desktop. It appears that the USER-ID agent system is waking the machines up. Has anyone else run into this problem? And if so what solutions have you found?
So far these are the solutions we've come up with.
I tried just using netbios probing, still wakes the machines up.
So at the moment I've turned off the netbios probing as well as we haven't fully implemented the palo alto yet.
So if I understand this correctly the user-id agent will still sort through the AD logs and figure out who's logging in, but I'm guessing it won't be as good as probing?
Is there an agent we could install on the desktops? ( I heard there used to be one)
Have you tried disabling all sorts of probes and enable 'server session read' ?
That way the PCs will directly not be probed but the DC's server logs will be checked for open socket sessions any domain PCs has ( log on and log off will be seen).
So . essentially we should still be able to dynamically monitor the user to IP enumeration without probing the PCs directly.
