Read about the new PAN-OS 9.0 Release Features: User-ID. Learn about the few highlights of features we added to User-ID, including: WinRM Support for Server Monitoring, Increased Terminal Services Capacity, User-ID Scaling in Terminal Services Capacity. 



WinRM Support for Server Monitoring

  • Provide an option for an alternative method to retrieve security logs and session info - Windows Remote Management (WinRM) to retrieve data (both over HTTP and HTTPS).
  • This method, improves performance and consumes less memory and CPU.
  • WinRM transit traffic is identified by the firewall as windows-remote-management in case the management interface is not used.




Increased Terminal Services Capacity

  • This feature increases the limit on the number of TS Agents supported on some of the platforms.
  • Another change introduced in this feature is that the TS Agent now supports host names for alternative host addresses.

Shared User-ID Mappings Across Virtual Systems

  • To easily enforce user-based policy in a multi-vsys environment, you can assign a virtual system as the User-ID hub to share mappings with other virtual systems. This reduces configuration complexity and maximizes the number of mappings available to each virtual system.
