override username in Aruba controller from ClearPass

I saw this thread about how to set the username instead of the MAC for mac auth:

http://community.arubanetworks.com/t5/AAA-NAC-Guest-Access-BYOD/How-to-return-username-MAC-auth/td-p/138541

 

can something similar be done for other authentication methods, i.e. EAP-PEAP / EAP-TLS? or wont it work there?

I believe a similar process could work although I've never tested it.  I know this post and have seen how it works so it would lead me to believe that it might be possible

Re: override username in Aruba controller from ClearPass

well i tried and it didn't :) so now im wondering if i do something wrong or if it isnt possible. i can imagine that the proces for dot1x is different and the controller will just not accept it.

 

any chance anyone else could try?

I just tried it with PEAP and the controller does not show the overridden username.

Going back and thinking a bit, there isn't a IETF "username" in a mac auth SSID so perhaps this cannot be overriden.
