User-ID Agent

L2 Linker

I have the User-ID agent on one of my domain controllers and I have the firewalls set to get the ID from that and it gets some ID's but doesnt seem to get all. So I thought maybe add active directory and exchange server monitoring. 


But I get errors in the panorama sysem log that just say connect-server-monitor-failure I set the account to domain admn even to see if it was a permission issue and its still saying this. Is there any way in the PA to get a better error that will give me more detail about why exactly its failing to connect?

run 'less mp-log useridd.log' on the CLI and look for the actual error. 

Is your UIA service actually being "ran as" a service account with rights to get logs from the DC?  Does the UIA application have the correct service account ID/PW in the application?  (BTW if you set the DC for the service account to have the right permissions on the DC that service account doesn't need to be a domain admin...and it's good security practice for it not to.)


If you follow the steps (step by step) on setting up UIA you shouldn't have any issues.  


I have 4 UIAs in my environment.  Have had them for the past 5 years and haven't run into a problem other than not having the right ID and PW.


Also make sure your UIA version is installed on the right OS platform.
