ClearPass 6.5.0 CP-SW-EVAL conversion & its deployment

Hi,

 

I'm new with Aruba ClearPass and need some suggestions:

1. I have a testing environment using ClearPass 6.5.0 CP-SW-EVAL VM and now our customer want to use it as production with ClearPass 6.5.0 CP-VA-5K license. Can we convert ClearPass 6.5.0 CP-SW-EVAL VM into a ClearPass 6.5.0 CP-VA-5K? Since the CPU, disk space & RAM requirement is different. 

 

2. What is pros & cons by having ClearPass installed on Data Center while all the APs are in remote building. Or it is recommeded to install ClearPass inside the building only?

 

Thanks,

Niko

Hello,

 

So you can use the cli command "morph" to migrate from a EVAL to a 5K. Note in 6.5 this is a one off operation to go from a EVAL to a 5K VM.

 

Note that you will have to provision disk/cpu/ram to match the 5K VM specification or you will be running UNSUPPORTED.

 

Regard where you deploy CPPM, I'd ask you where is the auth-source that CPPM will talk to.... if its AD and that's in the DC then position CPPM as close to the auth-source as possible.
