- how much and whay type of licenses Aruba clear pass can support?

 

Clearpass is devided into 5 parts:

Policy Manager (this is the base platform that the other components are licensed on)

Guest

Onboard

Onguard

Workspace

 

Policy manager is the platform. It comes in different versions based on the number of authenticated devices..E.g. 500, 5K, 25K

You get 25 enterprise licenses when you purchase policy manager. (1 x enterprise license is equal to 1 x guest + 1 x onboard + 1 x onguard + 1 x workspace).

 

Guest, Onboard and Onguard are licenses which can be applied to Clearpass. They come in lots of different increments from 100 to 100K.

 

Not 100% sure about workspace licensing though.

 

Here's some links to the Clearpass datasheets... :smileyhappy:

Re: Number of Licenses can Aruba Clear Pass support ?

Other things to note:

 

  • OnGuard, Guest, and OnBoard licensing is applied cluster-wide; the licenses are shared among all nodes in the cluster
  • OnGuard, Guest, and OnBoard licenses are available in perpetual and subscription options (1, 3, and 5 year)
  • CPPM base licensing is based on the number of unique devices (MAC addresses) that authenticate per week (7 day rolling average); scalable to 1M endpoints
  • OnGuard licensing is based on the number of unique devices per day (7 day rolling average) that authenticate where a statement of health is checked as part of the authorization process (persistent, dissolvable or NAP agent support). 
  • OnBoard licensing is based on the actual number of devices enrolled
  • Guest licensing is based on the number of unique devices that authenticate to guest pages with accounts from the Guest user DB within CPPM.  Users from external data sources and MACauth do not count against the guest license.  The count is reset per day (and averaged over 30 days)

 

Please talk to your local Aruba team for specifics in your scenario.
