ClearPass 802.1x authentication with AD

Hi all,

 

We're using CPPM v6.3.   I tried to configure AD as authentication source for 802.1x while the CPPM doesn't join AD domain.     Test failed with authentication failed (no matter which ever method is used, EAP-TTLS, EAP-PEAP, etc.)

 

Found in CPPM User Guide that

"You can join CPPM to an Active Directory (AD) domain to authenticate users and computers that are members of an Active Directory domain. Joining CPPM to an Active Directory domain creates a computer account for the CPPM node in the AD database. Users can then authenticate into the network using 802.1X and EAP methods, such as PEAPMSCHAPv2, with their own their own AD credentials."

 

I wonder if it's a must for CPPM to join AD domain for authentication against AD.

 

Would anyone please help?

 

Thanks and regards

No - you need to join CPPM to your domain.  Have you done so and does it work?

It works.  Thanks a lot. :)

 

Btw, just curious if the underlying OS of CPPM is a Windows or Linux based, and the version.  

Where can I find such information?

 

Thanks and rgds
