Identity Awareness - IDC Problems

Hi,

we have been using Identity Awareness for a long time now. In the past we always used Identy Agents and had different problems with them ( most likely rather client based problems). A while ago we started using Identity Collectors on our AD servers. Basically this works quite well for us, but we have the situation several times a week that different users are not authenticated. Often I see that the ID Collector at the AD recognizes the user but this information does not reach the gateways. Only when I restart the pepd and pdpd service at the gateway will it work again.

Has anyone had a similar problem and knows why they occure?

 

Our Infrastructure:

2 Checkpoint GWs (Version: R80.30 Take 76)

2 AD Servers with IDC Version: 80.87.0000

Both IDC report Identities to both Gateways and the GWs are configured to share the identities between them

 

Best Regards

Rene

Probably best to get the TAC involved.

Hi Rene,

 

It will indeed require further investigation.

However, as a first step, I would recommend checking where the issue resides and provide this extra info to TAC.

Type the following commands on both PDP and PEP to see where the identity is known:

# pdp m u <PROBLEMATIC USERNAME>

or alternatively:

# pdp m ip <PROBLEMATIC IP>

 

and on the PEP side:

# pep sh u q cid <PROBLEMATIC IP>

or alternatively:

# pep sh u q usr <PROBLEMATIC USERNAME>

 

In addition to the above outputs, please provide TAC:

1. cpinfo from both PDP and PEP (if these are different machines)

2. log files:

$FWDIR/log/pdpd.elg*

$FWDIR/log/pepd.elg*

 

Thanks,

Royi Priov.

Hi Rene,

Did you get a fix from TAC for this as we're experiencing similar issues?

Many thanks
