Retrieve Primary group of a user

L1 Bithead


I've just upgraded my PA-2050 to 4.1.1 and configured LDAP servers and group mapping for building some policies rules based on AD groups.

Everything works well except one thing.

The primary group of a user is not retrieved.

And this is a problem because I had a policy rule based on it.

Exemple : if a user "toto" belongs to these groups :

- Domain user     => primary group

- group_1

- group_2

Only group_1 and group_2 are retrieved with LDAP

It's possible to configure Group Mapping to retrieve group and primary group ?

Yo should contact support and open a case.

Thank you

as a workaround, I've added a new group to everybody that belongs to the primary group "Domain users" and my policy rule is based on the new group.
