PAM: Device with SFA is not displayed in the Socket Filter Agents Status list


Article ID: 6749


Updated On:


CA Privileged Access Manager (PAM)


When you go to Devices Socket Filter Agent, the Socket Filter Agent is not shown in the list.

When you go to Policies Manage Policy Filters, then select CONFIG, you confirm that SFA Monitoring is enabled.


SFA monitoring is intended for filter monitoring.

If this is a new device to CA PAM or SFA is freshly installed on the device, then you need to assign a socket filter policy to the device in order for it to appear in the list.

After doing so, wait a few minutes and check the list again.

Additional Information

Check the log.txt residing under <Socket Filter>\Bin directory to troubleshoot the SFA related issues.
