User-ID picks up admin users ID not their proper login.

I have noticed that some of our users who have normal and privileged accounts are showing their "Privileged account" under User-ID.

 

Querying in windows shows the correct user...

 

show user ip-user-mapping ip


IP address:    1xx.1xx.1.187 (vsys1)
User:          xyznet\jimp.admin
From:          AD
Idle Timeout:  2638s
Max. TTL:      2638s
Group(s):      xyznet\jimp.admin(632)

 

 

C:\>psexec \\1xx.1xx.1.187 query user

PsExec v2.2 - Execute processes remotely
USERNAME              SESSIONNAME        ID  STATE   IDLE TIME  LOGON TIME
 jim.pape             console             1  Active      none   06/11/2018 09:0

 

 

 

I think the users may be briefly running something ( maybe connecting a file share, or runnign a elevated command window ) whatever it is it's causing problems for user-id based rules...

 

Has anyone seen this, any way arround it?

@RobinClayton,

This is actually really really common. Within the User Identification settings under the User-ID agent setup screen you have an option to setup an Ignore User List. Simply put the admin accounts in there if you aren't using this information in policy anywhere and don't want it to record as their admin account.

Ahh..

 

Think we have been here from a different angle.

 

Presently we don't match any rules for the admin users, so that would be an option to ignore them.
