Airwave RAPIDS shows few rogue names as "Locally Ad"

Aruba Employee

Airwave RAPIDs shows  few rogue APs name as locally-ad instead of proper vendor mac name?





Airwave have list of OUIs of different vendors, we could get the list of available vendor in oui_data.csv file.

Path to oui_data.csv file is  /root/svn/mercury/lib/perl/Mercury/OUI/updates/ directory.


If discovered rogue device mac OUI is not listed in the oui_data.csv file it marks the device name as Locally Ad

Example 1,

In below screen shot, we could see Rogue MAC OUI 02:18:1A is not listed in oui_data.csv file. It marked the device name as Locally Ad -D3:C3:10


Example 2

In below screen shot, we could see Rogue MAC OUI 00:18:0A is listed in oui_data.csv file and it shows proper vendor name Meraki, ln-D3:C3:10


The oui_data.csv is updated with Airwave upgrade. Hence running latest Airwave version is recommended for getting the right vendor name for discovered rogues.
