Vlan Pooling

Hello, i have a hopefully easy question.  I am running out of IP's in my main Student wireless vlan.  I have a second one that i would like to use and it sounds like vlan pooling is the way to go.  I created the vlan pool but i dont see it as an option to select when defining the vlan of the user role.  We are using clearpass so when it returns a role of "student" to the controller the user role "student" is dropped onto vlan 42.  This is set in "Access Control" then i edit the role and under Role Vlan ID i have vlan 42 selected. 

 

I would like to change this so that the user role "student" drops into the vlan pool istead of vlan 42.  What am i missing?

 

Thanks for your help!

Hi, what version of code are you running? User-role VLAN pools were added in 6.3

Re: Vlan Pooling

6.2.1.2.  So i need to do a code upgrade to get the funtionality?  Thats a bit of a bummer.  I just hate doing code upgrades when things are working ok, because you never know what might happen.

Re: Vlan Pooling

Unfortunately you would need to upgrade to 6.3.x to take advantage of this new feature.

 

An alternative would be to return a vlan pool name in the RADIUS reponse with the VSA "Aruba-Named-Vlan".

 

You could also split up your AP groups and assign different VLANs to the VAPs.
