Juniper SA - AD problems

Hi All!

We have a SA-4500 6.1R4 and we authenticate direct against our Active Directory... normaly role mapping and displaying role webpage works OK... but it seems like when user is a member of a few specific Global groups ( one of the global group is not used for role mapping or anything else with the SA) the role webpage after sign in times out... user gets - Internet Explorer connot display this page

If I do a record policy trace while the user logs in the trace stopps at Getting directory information from auth server

If I remove the user from the specific AD global group, the user can login (role mapping works)

And Role mapping continues..........

At one stage I thought it was the amount of groups that users where member of that was the problem... but If I removed the Global group and and added even more groups to the test user ... I was still able to logon!

So If any one else have experinced a similar problem please reply to this post...?

If I haven't been able to solve this until monday I will open a case with the Juniper support....

Re: Juniper SA - AD problems

OK I think I have got on step closer, seems like when the global groups are members of an universal group we get this problem .... We have had this ad structure for ages and we havn't done any changes to the Juniper SA, so I don't have a clue why this problem appears now?!
