SonicWALL SSO Bypass for Windows Update

If you have a SonicWALL configured with LDAP + single sign on and content filtering, you may run into an issue where a server is not able to get out to Windows Update. ¬†Using the SonicWALL Directory Connector diagnostic tool, a check on the server’s IP came back with a locally logged on user, specifically “Acronis Agent User” rather than the domain administrator account that was currently logged in. ¬†This local user name was keyed into the SonicWALL’s SSO config under “User names used by Windows services”, which then allowed the Windows Update agent to successfully connect out.
