Unable to connect to WPA2 Enterprise SSID

We had a power outage post which a user is unable to connect to the WPA2 Enterprise SSID, where he is able to connect to WPA2-PSK SSID. I have already done the following troubleshooting

 

recreated the WPA2-Enterprise profile

restarted the WLAN Autoconfig service

reinstalled the wireless driver

 

When i performed AAA server diagnostic using the user's ID, the authentication was successfull.

 

Why isnt the user not able to connect only to the WPA2-Enterprise ID. The user is using a Win 7 OS.

 

Another incident of similar type is wherein I m unable to create the WPA2 Enterprise profile itself in a user's laptop, but the same user is able to connect to the WPA-PSK SSID.

 

Need Help !

Thanks

Re: Unable to connect to WPA2 Enterprise SSID

WPA2 Enterprise relies on the use of RADIUS for user authentication.  If the clients can connect to WPA2-PSK networks, but not WPA2-Enterprise; I would first check the RADIUS server to make sure it has the proper policies setup.   What is the RADIUS solution?   Can you share any logs at the time of failure?

RADIUS Authentication is working fine because authentication is successful when i do AAA test server diagnostic on the radius server.

 

Output of show IP radius source-interface and show profile errors

Sometimes the AAA test is not the exact same authentication that is done at the radius server.

 

Try to connect the client and collect the message from the logs on the radius server when the client tries to connect.

 

Also on the controller, please supply the output of "show auth-tracebuf mac <mac address of client>"

 

Is this failing for ALL users, or just that specific user.  Also, if you cannot create a WPA2 profile on the client, it is a client issue and that needs to be solved on the client side.

Re: Unable to connect to WPA2 Enterprise SSID

The output of the radius server is essential.  If the user is failing authentication, we need to see what the radius server logs are saying.  There are many reasons why the user could be failing and the radius server will give us a piece of that puzzle.
