./create_group_dump.pl & ./restore_group_dump.pl caused AMP to delete local-userdb-guest accounts?

*TAC case has been opened*

 

Here is an interesting one for you all

I decided today to move a particular Airwave group from 1 AMP to another.

I used ./create_group_dump.pl to create the dump file on the current AMP

I then used ./restore_group_dump.pl to re-create that same AMP group on the destination AMP.

 

That worked no problem. Group was created, devices were moved over. I moved the devices afterwards into specific folders.

 

I then find out soon after that the following occured.

The "new" AMP went ahead and ran the following commands on the controllers:

Sep  4 10:22:30  fpcli: USER:MANUAirwave@10.204.65.13 COMMAND:<local-userdb-guest del username "sdsdsdsd" > -- command executed successfully
Sep  4 10:22:30  fpcli: USER:MANUAirwave@10.204.65.13 COMMAND:<local-userdb-guest del username "sdsdss" > -- command executed successfully
Sep  4 10:22:30  fpcli: USER:MANUAirwave@10.204.65.13 COMMAND:<local-userdb-guest del username "dfdf" > -- command executed successfully
Sep  4 10:22:30  fpcli: USER:MANUAirwave@10.204.65.13 COMMAND:<local-userdb-guest del username "ÉsdsdfÉ" > -- command executed successfully
Sep  4 10:22:30  fpcli: USER:MANUAirwave@10.204.65.13 COMMAND:<local-userdb-guest del username "ffsdg" > -- command executed successfully

 I changed the usernames for security reasons

 

None of the users were then able to authenticate to the network. I manually restored the usernames/passwords to the internal db and all was resolved.

 

Now the question arises? Why would Airwave go ahead and remove these users??

 

1. On the Original AMP, the devices were set to monitor-mode only

2. The Destination Airwave already had other groups and devices being monitored in monitor-mode only.

 

Original AMP: 7.6.2

Destination AMP: 7.6.4

That behavior seems odd unless the controller was in management mode.  What did the device and event logs for the controller show?

What you see above your post is the audit-trail from the controller.

That's all it shows....

 

Also, why would it only erase those internal users and not overwrite it with the base AMP config for Aruba controllers?

Normally I'd expect to see somewhere that says mismatch, and then a following line that says changes pushed.  Not seeing that in the log portions you sent.  Let me know what support finds out, I'd be interested in the root cause.

Definitely will let you know.
I can provide you the case number if you'd like as well so you can poke through it.

On the AMP Setup page of the new server, do you have guest user creation enabled for all devices?  That could definitely contribute to this.

Re: ./create_group_dump.pl

Unfortunately yes
[cid:image001.png@01CEAA2F.79827260]

Even in monitor-mode it will still push a delete command?

Re: ./create_group_dump.pl

Yes.  If the new AMP doesn't think the users should be there, but they are, it would delete them. 

 

For managing guest users, ClearPass is a better solution than AirWave in many ways.

Re: ./create_group_dump.pl

Clearpass definitely. Unfortunately since we are an MSP, the end customer purchased the equipment through our partner, no clearpass.

I'm still confused as to why AMP would do this, the devices are in monitor-mode only, shouldn't AMP not touch the controllers at all if that's the case?
Is this documented somewhere.

As you know Dan, Airwave is my baby and I haven't seen this anywhere!

Re: ./create_group_dump.pl

TAC is still working on this even though I through out what you mentioned to them Dan.
