To enable a firewall or virtual system to serve as a User-ID
agent that redistributes user mapping information along with the

this firewall to an appliance (such as Panorama) that will receive
the mapping information and timestamps, the appliance uses these
fields to identify the firewall or virtual system as a User-ID agent.

to configure firewalls
to redistribute user mapping information and authentication timestamps
requires additional tasks besides specifying the redistribution
By default, a firewall with multiple virtual systems
