Required permissions for Active Directory integration

Hello,

 

I am trying to get AD authentication to work for GlobalProtect.  I have been following this document https://knowledgebase.paloaltonetworks.com/KCSArticleDetail?id=kA10g000000CmAdCAK for configuring the AD integration part, and it says:

 

Before you integrate a Palo Alto Networks device with AD, you must create a user ID in AD that you'll use to access LDAP. At a minimum, this account must be a member of the built-in Server Operators group in AD. For security reasons and to be compliant with the best practices, you should adhere to the minimum access rights for this account.

 

I put the account that I created in the Server Operators group, however when it tries to connect to a domain controller, I get Access Denied (Device > User Identification > User Mapping > Server Monitoring box).  If I stick that account in the Domain Admins group, I get Connected.  So, is the document wrong about the minimum required access rights, or am I missing a permission someplace else?

 

Thanks

Dylan

I'm sure you need the following...

 

Event Log Reader

Distributed COM Users

Server Operators

 

 

Server operators is the very minimum, just about allows you to bind but not dig deep and read logs...

Awesome thank you.  Looks like it actually doesn't need the Event Log Reader but did need Distributed Com Users.
