Multiple Domain and domain name

L0 Member


I have deployed 1 cluster of PA 3020(5.0.5) and UIA on 2 servers of the domain.

The domain architecture is as following:

1 parent domain: idf.local

6 child domain: xx.idf.local, yy.idf.local, ...

UIA works well and we have good informations on the PA with NETBIOS domaine name

show user ip-user-mapping all:




But with the group mapping, it's fqdn domain that appears.

show user group name "cn=ggggggg,ou=fffffffff,dc=idf,dc=local":




LDAP server profile configuration is done with global catalog:

admin@XXXXXX(active)# show shared server-profile ldap profile-AD-GC

profile-AD-GC {

  server {

    gtgt50.idf.local {

      port 3269;




  ldap-type active-directory;

  base DC=idf,DC=local;

  bind-dn "CN=login,......,DC=idf,DC=local";

  timelimit 30;

  bind-timelimit 30;

  bind-password -AQ==SdRlIx0rvZ/zcM4qhyMPexBjphE=Xce5R8I57K7Xi1MRcJdzBg==;

  ssl yes;



The problem is that I can't create policy based on AD group because there is a mismatch between UIA and Group Mapping information.

Any idea?

Can you try using IDF as a domain in the LDAP server profile and refresh the group-mapping :

> debug user-id refresh group-mapping <>

I have already tried this but it overrides all domain name:

show user group name "cn=ggggggg,ou=fffffffff,dc=idf,dc=local":




The problem is that user2 belongs to XX domain which is the domain child(xx.idf.local).


Try creating separate LDAP Server (port 389 or 636) profiles for the parent domain and each child domain including in the configuration NetBios-style domain name and corresponding base.

In Group Mapping Settings create Group Mapping configuration using every LDAP Server Profile (8 in total).

Hope this helps! Update if it does 😉

Global Catalog is used for identifying membership in Universal Groups.

As albert_C said, create one ldap profile per server and configure "Domain" in the profile then, domain name will be re-write as you want.
