USER ID MAX USERS IN A GROUP???

L3 Networker

Hello,

I've configured on PA5060 an Idenfication with AD:

PA5060: 4.1.6    USER ID AGENT : 4.1.4-3

LDAP SERVER 389

I do a group mapping  by group but this group have more than 16000 users.

when I do a show user usersIDS , I can't see all my users. I know that AD have a limitation of page size to 1000 users by request.

do you know if they are an limitation for the numbers of users in a group when you use PA ???

do you have a workaround for this problem???

thanks,

The limit is in the number of groups and user-mappings each firewall can hold. For now it is 64K users and 640 groups. Per my understanding, there is no hard limit of maximum number of users each group can hold. You can have all 64k users in one group or can evenly or unevenly distribute them in each group. Please let me know if this is helpful.

I would also be interrested in if someone has some more information regarding this matter.

Is this a hard limit due to restrictions in pfga/asics being used or is this a software limit (which PA, after a feature request, could make larger for lets say PA-5xxx series)?

To be a little bit more specific concerning the 640 groups "a firewall can hold": --> This is only the number of groups that can be used in the policies of the firewall (source or destination user section), but the firewall can store more than 640 groups in its database, which of course is a MUST because many customers might have more than 640 groups in their ADs.

To see the actual number of different groups, you can use the following command on the CLI:

show user group list | match Total

This shows the number of groups.
