adding more than one UIA agent on firewall?

L2 Linker

Hi Techies,


I have a small doubt whether I can add more than one UIA server in my firewall in the sense that they should behave kind of active passive .


Requirement is something like that I want to secure user id functionality on firewall so that if one of my UIA gets down , then firewall should contact other UIA server for that....


Let me know if we have any solution for it ...


The UIA reads the windows event logs continuously to provide the most current User-IP mappings to the firewall. The firewall then talks to both UIAs and always uses the most current timestamp for an IP. So lets assume the following:

UIA1: domain\johndoe 20180531-06:10:34

UIA2: domain\johndoe 20180531-07:23:26


In this case the firewall would have received the mapping first from UIA1. As soon as the new mapping is present on UIA2 the firewall updates it's user-ip-mapping table with the new event from UIA2.

Thanks man...i got it now...
