This sounds like you have Client Probing enabled, and if you've verified that User-ID is disabled on the untrust interface you'll also want to go through and verify that it isn't included in your Include Network listing. 

Thanks for your response Bpry


So, you mean  in UIA Agent config to add the LAN network in "incluted list of configured networks", right?

or you mean to disable WMI probing (this could cause impact)


So we also should disable Probin in PA config? "Go to Device >> User Identification
On the "User Mapping" tab, in the "Palo Alto Networks User ID Agent" pane, view the "Enable Probing" check box. If it is selected, this is a finding.




verify that you actually have an include network configured on the agent. Client Probing really isn't a recommended configuration anymore, and you definitely don't want to allow sending those probes externally.
