This is messing up our EDR solution. 


This program will run cmd.exe and then whoami /groups

C:\Program Files\Palo Alto Networks\GlobalProtect\PanGpHip.exe


Whoami as the Local System authority is a bad thing in our EDR world. Is there anyway to change this behaviour?

did you ever find a solution? we have the same issue

We have the same issue and currently have a ticket open with Palo Alto Support. 

Latest comment from Support asked us to disable "Collect HIP Data", this will prevent the whoami.exe process. However, I replied informing them that we are not able to disable the HIP Data collection as this would also remove the HIP-based policy enforcement we are using (which is the reason why Collect HIP Data is enabled in the first place: GlobalProtect Portals Agent HIP Data Collection Tab).


No resolution yet, no ETA.

I have heard nothing. We still have the same issue
