User-ID / group mapped incorrectly

Hi all,

I've wanted to block some sites for specific users and created an AD group on my W2K8 R2 DC. Unfortunatly I have some problems that I haven't encountered before.

When checking the user I see the user is a member of my test group, so far so good.

> show user user-IDs match-user somedomain.local\test

User Name                       Vsys    Groups
------------------------------------------------------------------
somedomain.local\test          vsys1   cn=test-block,ou=groups,ou=ou,dc=somedomain,dc=local

When checking the user/IP mapping on the firewall it lists the user:

> show user ip-user-mapping | match test

x.y.z.224   AD        somedomain.local\test                 3475             3475

Still all well. But when I browse to the blocked content, it isn't blocked. When adding the user somedomain\test to the security rule the user gets blocked!

But the username in this format is not mapped to the group, nor can I find the user in this short format.

Can I configure somewhere the full domain name should be used and not the abbreviated one?

The group mapping has an update interval to check for new group/member.  Maybe the new AD group is not learnt yet and need to wait for the update.

The problem was caused by wrong LDAP server properties. The FQDN of the domain was specified instead of the last portion.
