radius authentication iap managed by airwave

I have  several iap 205 APs which are managed by Airwave server. i want to configure radius authentication on one WLAN. and i have to add trusted IP address from radius server side. 

Which IP address i have to add at Radius server? (airwave's, iaps virtual controllers  or active iaps ip address)

Re: radius authentication iap managed by airwave

If you enable "Dynamic Radius Proxy" it will enable all of the radius traffic to come from the Virtual Controller ip address:  http://www.arubanetworks.com/techdocs/Instant_42_WebHelp/InstantWebHelp.htm?_ga=1.43038629.1615771646.1440445030#CLI_commands/dynamic-radius-proxy.htm?Highlight=dynamic radius proxy

 

You have to first enable a Virtual Controller ip address, however:  http://www.arubanetworks.com/techdocs/Instant_42_WebHelp/InstantWebHelp.htm?_ga=1.43038629.1615771646.1440445030#UG_files/GeneralConfTasks/Basic_conf_tasks/Virtual_Controller_IP_Ad.htm?Highlight=virtual ip

 

When you do both of those things, radius traffic from any access point will come from the Virtual IP.  You can configure that Virtual IP as the radius client on your radius server..

Re: radius authentication iap managed by airwave

i will have many branches where IAP access points will be installed.  So i have to add every branchs virtual ip to my radius server. am i right?  

Is it possible to add only airwave-s Ip address to radius server ?  and authentication to be performed through airwave server.

Yes, you will have to add the Virtual-IP of each branch.  No authentication takes place through the Airwave server:  The Airwave server is for monitoring and configuration, but it is not in the authentication path, no.
