While looking through logs to see why occionally a user gets reported as instead of domain\user, we noticed the logs were filled with COMPUTERHOSTNAME@DOMAIN.COM as well.  Is this expected?

Re: USER-ID littered with pc HOSTNAME@DOMAIN.COM

@OGMaverick: Please check which user id source is providing that format

show user user-id ip-usermapping all | match <user | ip>

I guess you got the Authentication profile for that source mixed up - it's the following settings:

Re: USER-ID littered with pc HOSTNAME@DOMAIN.COM

Auth profile is correct & the user with the computer hostname never shows in the traffic/url logs or in the CLI when I did a show user ip-user-mapping all.  It's like the PCs are passing the hostname to the DCs as the username from time to time.  Grabbed a small snippet of the user-ID logs to show what I'm talking about.  When this happens, the user appears in traffic logs as until they reappear into user-id the correct way. Top 2 are normal and have the username.  Second two are showing PC hostname.  All from the same source.  Would love to stop the bottom 2 from happening
