Rc_error_ike_xauth_authorization_failed.

I'm trying to connect a RAP5WN to my controller and I keep getting an error msg that says RC_ERROR_IKE_XAUTH_AUTHORIZATION_FAILED.

I have the mac address of MAC:0 on the RAP whitelist correctly. I even tried listing it on the campus whitelist. No luck.

It is connecting to the controller because I can see the tpm certs pass ok. Just seems like it's not liking the mac authentication. Any suggestions?

Thanks!

Re: Rc_error_ike_xauth_authorization_failed.

Turn on debugging:

config t
logging level debug security process authmgr

Then type:

show log security 100

This will tell you why authentication is failing while that RAP is coming up.

That error mainly means that you have not entered, or entered the mac address incorrectly into the RAP whitelist.

This is what I am seeing.....

Jun 10 06:02:34 :133019: |localdb| User 00:0b:86:67:4e:11 was not found in the database
Jun 10 06:02:34 :133006: |localdb| User 00:0b:86:67:4e:11 Failed Authentication
Jun 10 06:02:34 :199802: |authmgr| user.c, user_add_blacklist:8790: Blacklist failure count hit an internal maximum for t he server group (auth_type 3)
Jun 10 06:02:34 :103048: |ike| IKE XAuth failed for 00:0b:86:67:4e:11


Looks like the mac isn't in the database. Doesn't putting it on the whitelist automatically add it?

Re: Rc_error_ike_xauth_authorization_failed.

Do this on the commandline of the controller:



After you do that, try to provision again.
