Can I monitor wired RAP users with AirWave

Hi All,

 

We have a pretty large deployment of RAP3s and RAP155s, and we're using AirWave to monitor. Many of the devices using the RAPs are wired. We have no problem using AirWave to monitor RAP clients which are connected wirelessly, but, for some reason we do not see any wired RAP clients in AirWave. We're running 8.0 on AirWave and 6.3 on the controller. Seems like this should be a no brainer.. Could I be missing something, or is this just not supported....

You need to:

1.create a AAA profile where the initial role is either authenticated, or create a role called "wired" with allow all firewall rules.
2. Assign that AAA profile to your wired port profile of your rap, and make the wired port untrusted.

Your wired users will show up in the user table and in Airwave as whatever role you created in step 1.

Hi Colin,

 

Thanks for the quick reply.

 

None of my wired clients are connected to trusted ports. All clients are assigned a role and I see them in my controller. Never in AirWavve..

Pete, are those devices on tunneled or bridged ports?  Can you search for them by ip address or mac address in Airwave?

They are all tunneled.

 

I cannot find them by MAC, or IP address.

 

Also, I see 0 clients when selecting all ethernet ports for the client chart on AirWave's AP/Device > Monitoring page.

 

Thanks,

Is your Airwave 8.0 only?  You might want to try upgrading to the latest Airwave if you can, because there were fixes for the wired client display.

I'm running 8.0.7.

 

I'm going to open a TAC case.

Hi All,

 

I just wanted to provide an update.

 

We found that if we set "Prefer AMON vs SNMP Polling:" to no, we begin to see wireless client data in AirWave. If we prefer AMON over SNMP we do not see wired client data.

 

Acording to TAC:  A defect has been filed for this issue and our engineering team is working on it. Right now we don’t have an ETA on the fix. However we are keeping track on the progress, will keep you updated.

Are there any news on this?

 

I recently upgraded AirWave to 8.2.3 in the hope that wired clients are going to be showed up but no success.

 

I tried to set "Prefer AMON vs SNMP Polling" to no and restarted AMP. However there we're no wired clients shown.
