MAC authentication

ArubaOS 3.4.2.0
Aruba200

I am trying to enable mac address authentication but am unable to set the mac authentication default role. I have been unable to find this option in the GUI and the CLI does not have the the command aaa profile to set this.

Has there been a change in the way this is applied from the earlier arubaos versions or possibly a licensing issue as we only have the base licenses installed?

Thanks

Re: MAC authentication

If you only have the base license, you cannot set roles. You can only enable authentication, or not.

Re: MAC authentication

Hi Colin

Thanks for the reply, I have actived a temp license for Policy Enforcement Firewall, but still seem to be having the same issue. Is this the correct license for what we want?

License Table
-------------
Key Installed Expires Flags Service Type
--- --------- ------- ----- ------------
XXXXXXXX-XXXXXXXX--1L4 2011-10-12 2011-11-11 E Policy Enforcement Firewall
16:05:07 16:05:07

From my reading we should be able to run

aaa profile
mac-default-role

But this is not an option for us as per below.

(Aruba200) #aaa ?
authentication Authentication
inservice Bring authentication server into service
ipv6 Internet Protocol Version 6
query-user Query User
test-server Test authentication server
user User commands


Thanks

Re: MAC authentication

you need to type "config t" before running that command.

What version of code is this? Please type "show keys", as well.

Re: MAC authentication

We are running ArubaOS 3.4.2.0, but it looks like our temp key did not work as it is showing Policy Enforcement Firewall as disabled. I will order this license and we should be good to go.

Thanks for your help.

Re: MAC authentication

If you have a login to the Aruba networks licensing site, you generate a temporary license. Applying the PEF license will require a reboot, however.
