RDP through GP tunnel with a different user.

Hi All,


I have a client that has recently run into an issue, after upgrading to PAN OS 10.1.2. When they connect to Global Protect with their username and then try to RDP through the GP tunnel to a server on site using a different user account that is not in the allowed GP user AD group, the GP tunnel looks to freeze (doesn't disconnect) and all users have to reconnect to GP. 


Client advised that they were able to do this prior to upgrading. The traffic log detects the different username being used through the tunnel. The client has now added the different user into the allowed GP AD group and this looks to have resolved the issue. The client can now RDP through the tunnel with this different user, when logged onto GP with their user account.


It looks like the PAN is now smart enough to detect the different user trying to connect through the tunnel, where it may not have been before. GPS log has a gap in logging for approx. 10 mins when the different user tries to login over the tunnel, so not much there to go on by the looks.


So, I am wondering if this type of thing should be possible or not? Has anyone come across this type of thing before? Why does the whole tunnel seem to go down when they login as the different user?
