user-id agent log showing machine account, expected behavior or bug?

L3 Networker

Hello community,


I´d like to check with you regarding the following:

Since upgrading the user-id agent from 8.0 to 8.1 the user-id logs in the firewalls are showing "Managed Service Accounts" (computer accounts with "$" appended at the end) in the way "domain\computer_account$" as well as the user account who logs into the computer.

Does anyone know if this is a normal behavior?


Thank you.

Hi @Carracido ,


Yes this is expected. You can easily put those in the ignore list if desired:

We put accounts in the ignore_user_list.txt on servers running the user-id agent. Will the wildcard work in those files?
