I have noticed that some of our users who have normal and privileged accounts are showing their "Privileged account" under User-ID.
Querying in windows shows the correct user...
show user ip-user-mapping ip
IP address: 1xx.1xx.1.187 (vsys1)
Idle Timeout: 2638s
Max. TTL: 2638s
C:\>psexec \\1xx.1xx.1.187 query user
PsExec v2.2 - Execute processes remotely
USERNAME SESSIONNAME ID STATE IDLE TIME LOGON TIME
jim.pape console 1 Active none 06/11/2018 09:0
I think the users may be briefly running something ( maybe connecting a file share, or runnign a elevated command window ) whatever it is it's causing problems for user-id based rules...
Has anyone seen this, any way arround it?
This is actually really really common. Within the User Identification settings under the User-ID agent setup screen you have an option to setup an Ignore User List. Simply put the admin accounts in there if you aren't using this information in policy anywhere and don't want it to record as their admin account.
