Enabling Netskope before login

Good afternoon all,

 

So I've made some great progress on getting netskope to run so I can access all my network resources etc when it's up and running. However I've run into an issue when it comes to doing a remote Hybrid AD join.

 

The application is packaged up and working

 

I can access my domain controllers when not on a VPN through netskope private access.

 

What I can't do at the moment is domain join machines remotely, is there a way that I can for want of a better word, bodge the install or configure it in such a way so I can open network access and then authenticate against my on-prem domain controllers? I read somewhere that you can use NSBranding.JSON or something to enable the configuration but I can't find any official documentation.

 

Thanks

Good morning RGE_Master,

 

Currently, Private Access only runs in as the logged in user and there is currently no way with the current product to have a tunnel come up prior to login. Do you have a local admin account provisioned on these devices? If so, my suggestion is to log in for the first time with the local admin account, which will allow the NPA tunnel to connect, then do a domain join. Do not reboot, but instead after joining the domain, switch user to a domain user which will then cache the credentials of the now logged in domain user. 

 

I would also suggest reaching out to your SE so they can line up a call with the product manager so you can hear of our plans to better address this use case in the coming months.

Hello,

 

We are actively developing capability in NPA, to allow Windows PCs to connect to Domain Controllers, w/o requiring the user to authenticate into the Netskope Client. This would be similar to the Pre-login capability that exists in traditional VPN solutions. Is this something you are interested in learning more about? If so, please DM me or have your account team ping me.

Hi Kunal,

Our company also would benefit greatly from the pre-login capability for Domain Controller connectivity.

Can someone here confirm if NPA Pre-Logon is GA yet?

@jdom not yet, still in beta - but works pretty darn well and we're close.  Feel free to DM me if you want to connect to get more info or get your hands on it earlier.

We do have access but I can't say with confidence that Pre-Logon is working at all for us.
But I think we may just wait until it is GA before pursuing it again.

@jdom I am the Product Manager for NPA. I would like my team to assist you with pre-logon testing and also review your use case. What is the best way to reach you?
