Clearpass Auth type not set

Hi all,

I have a service on clearpass that is working with a number of instant AP sites and a controller-based site in another continent. I am in the process of moving the UK controller to use the same service. The PEAP user authentications are throwing up the error - " rlm_auth_check: Auth-Type not set or authentication methods have not been configured". The devices across the company should all be using the same settings, so I believe the client base should be the same. When I add [mschap] to the list of authentication methods in clearpass the authentications in the UK are successful. Its a new test profile on the controller that I am using - any ideas why the required EAP-PEAP is not working?

Not enough information to make a determination.  Has the incoming authentication been classified by a service?

Re: Clearpass Auth type not set

Yes the request correctly matched the required service - as I said it works if I add in [MSCHAP] into the authentication methods.

Re: Clearpass Auth type not set

If it works with PEAP, you should look at the successful authentication and see the radius attributes, and determine from there.  That is where the answer is.

[ Edited ]

Is that controller by chance terminating the EAP session and only sending over the inner MSCHAP authentication portion; rather than the entire EAP session?  Check the dot1x profile for that configuration to see if EAP termination is on.

Re: Clearpass Auth type not set

I did not believe that it was, but in fact it is. I have created a new dot1x profile without termination enabled and customer tells me that it is working. Thanks for that. Can someone explain why the authentications were hitting Clearpass - does the controller only terminate certain EAP types and backoff the rest?

Re: Clearpass Auth type not set

If you have termination enabled, it will use work with the eap types that are selected in the same dot1x profile.    All the controller does is terminate the tunnel, the authentications are still passed onto the server defined in the AAA profile server group.  If you had termination enabled and CPPM as the server group, the controller would terminate the connection from the client and then pass auths to CPPM.  They probably matched all the conditions of the service.....however they were no longer PEAP authentications, so they would fail (unless you enabled MSCHAP as an authentication type on the service.
