When enabling user-id where does it check against to get the information to identify  the users? I have it turned on for serveral zones and it only seems to work on the VPN user-id's.

You can use the security log of you’re domain controllers.


Check device, User Identification. I prefer using the User ID Agent and point the Palo Alto to this agent.


There are also scripts available to get the users from a radius log.


Good luck!

chances are that your user-id is not working at all.


the user ID is only showing for GP connections as learned via authentication.




That is what I was thinking too Mick, we authenticate against LDAP instead of AD and I was wondering if the PA only does the userid against AD

Like what you see?
