multiple user-ip-mapping sources

L4 Transporter

I recently configured windows user-id agent and have it in conjunction with agentless user-id. 

Can I have both running on the firewall as a redundancy?or should I remove agentless config?will it create any harm if I keep both running?


L7 Applicator

the 2 can run side by side.

I'm not sure of the implications of this, perhaps someone else could advise on that.. but...


we had the agentless-ID connecting to 8 DC's and then added 4 windows agents pointing to the same DC's and didnot remove the agentless for about 6 months as forgot they were on there... seemed to be OK.


I suppose it really depends on why you are using agentless in the first place...

if you chose the agent to keep this off the PA then seems pointless having it back on there... 


If you feel the need to go windows-agent then just add a couple or more for DR.









We had the agentless setup 6 months ago. I observed some intermittent drops in ip-user-mappings. Now, I added agent. As they seem to work togethere fine, I was just wondering if they act like redundant sources.

By the way, are there any priority values for UIA and agentless? I mean, if the same Ip-username is avauilable on both sources,will it be shown as just 1 entry or 2 entries within sec polcies?

I have never seen multiple entries in the logs for same users.


you can see the list of users collected by using CLI command :-


show user ip-user-mapping all

if users and IP's are duplicated you will see it here but very unlikely...


also... check your user identification timeout...   if this is default 45 mins then you probably will have issues... so set it to 4 hours (240 min).  on both agent and agentless.
