802.1x authentication only working with 1 AP

Hi everyone,

 

I'm experiencing an authentication problem and got a bit lost, here's what's going on:

 

I have about 20 access point deployed with instant, I manage them using Airwave. I tried to implement an Employee network today (WPA-2 Enterprise), in the Radius server I configured the NAS IPv4 with the IP of the virtual controller. The problem is that authentication only works when the user is under the VC, if I go to another floor for example I can't authenticate.

In the Radius event viewer I'm receiving a lot of errors from the other access points, like this one below:

I did some research and I'm pretty sure it has something to do with certificates (I hate certificates), can someone enlight me with some knowledge? Do I have to go to my CA root and emit a certificate and install it in my airwave server? Should I create NAS entries in the Radius for my other access points as well?

 

Any help would be much appreciated.

Do you have Dynamic Radius Proxy enabled in the VC?

I don't think so, should I try enabling that?
I just configured the radius with name/Ip/Shared key

Yes, you should enable that.

I managed to authenticate at another floor using my notebook after enabling it! Looks good, I'll check the Radius to see if the alerts have stopped.
