Ho to see admin users logged into the controller and how to delete the sessions?

Aruba Employee
Requirement:

Aruba controller running Aruba 6.4 and above



Solution:

In the setup, I have logged into the controller using 3 different methods with the same username:

 

a. Console                             (serial cable)

b. SSH                                    (IP address:  10.20.25.21)

c. Websession                      (IP address:  10.20.25.21)

 

We can see the administrative users logged into the controller using the command "#show loginsessions"

 

(master) #show loginsessions

Session Table
-------------
ID  User Name  User Role  Connection From  Idle Time  Session Time
--  ---------  ---------  ---------------  ---------  ------------
1   admin      root       EIA-232          00:00:00   00:39:18
2   admin      root       10.20.25.21      00:00:20   00:00:21
3   admin      root       10.20.25.21      00:00:28   00:00:30

 

a. EIA-232 denotes serial  / console connection.

b. Serial / console session ID is always going to be 1.

b. We can see only the IP address for SSH and websession.

 



Configuration:

 

To clear the websession,  we can execute the command in the console window.

 

Below we clear session ID 2 which was for SSH session (denoted by telnet). After executing the command SSH window will close / logout.

(master) #clear loginsession 2
Telnet Session Killed By Console User

 

Below we clear session ID 3 which was for WebUI. After executing the command below, we will be logged out of the webUI OR will be get a login widow to authenticate again:

(master) #clear loginsession 3
WebUI session Killed By Console User.

 



Verification

 

If we try to execute the command on the SSH, we will see the error below:

(master) #show loginsessions

Session Table
-------------
ID  User Name  User Role  Connection From  Idle Time  Session Time
--  ---------  ---------  ---------------  ---------  ------------
1   admin      root       EIA-232          00:01:56   00:41:14
2   admin      root       10.20.25.21      00:00:00   00:02:17
3   admin      root       10.20.25.21      00:00:29   00:02:26

(master) #clear loginsession 2
Command can be executed only on the Console

 

We cannot delete the console session as the session ID for console is always 1 and it is not allowed in "#clear loginsession" command:

(master) #clear loginsession ?
<id>                    Session id 2-32
