This guide focuses on configuration of DHCP fingerprinting, which is used in conjunction with user roles on the Aruba Mobility Controller. When a user authenticates, their device type is taken into account. Based on that device type, a new role can be assigned to the device, such as restricting access to certain protocols or completely blocking access.
The ClearPass 6.5 Cumulative Patch 5 is now available.
In addition to several bug fixes, this release also includes several new enhancements:
* Updates to the HP RADIUS dictionary to support new features in upcoming ArubaOS-Switch (formerly ProVision) 16.01 release.
* New entries in the Guest "Vendor Settings" drop-down lists to simplify captive-portal configurations for ArubaOS-Switch, MSM and UWW platforms.
* Adds detection support for several new and updated products to OnGuard (see release notes for more details).
The patch file is available for download in the ClearPass Software Update Portal and also from the support.arubanetworks.com at the following location.

The ClearPass Deployment Guide is intended to assist Aruba SEs and network administrators, as well as
customers and partners, in deploying ClearPass Policy Manager.
This guide is organized in a way that presents the recommended sequence in which ClearPass deployment
should take place, and makes the major deployment tasks easy to understand and implement.
The ClearPass Deployment Guide includes the following information:
l Chapter 1: Install and configure ClearPass hardware and virtual appliances.
l Chapter 2: Prepare the Aruba Mobility Controller for integration with ClearPass Policy Manager.
l Chapter 3: Integrate ClearPass Policy Manager with Microsoft Active Directory.
l Chapter 4: Set up 802.1X wireless authentication with Active Directory.
l Chapter 5: Design and deploy ClearPass clusters.
l Chapter 6: Configure the Aruba Mobility Access Switch for 802.1X wired authentication.
l Chapter 7: Prepare ClearPass for LDAP and SQL authentication.
l Appendix A: Describes how a typical 802.1X authentication session flows when using ClearPass as the
authentication server with Microsoft Active Directory as the back-end user identity repository.
l Appendix B: Use the ClearPass Configuration API to configure or modify the entities in ClearPass without
logging into the Admin user interface. Information about how to access the entire set of APIs available
through ClearPass is also provided.

Overview of Aruba Instant Aruba Instant:
(Instant) is a system of access points per Layer 2 subnet. Aruba Instant IAPs are controlled by a single IAP that serves a dual role as a primary Virtual Controller, eliminating the need for dedicated controller hardware. This system can be deployed through a simplified setup process appropriate for smaller organizations, or for multiple geographically dispersed locations without an on-site administrator. Only the first IAP/Virtual Controller you add to the network must be configured; the subsequent IAPs will all inherit the necessary configuration information from the Virtual Controller. Aruba Instant continually monitors the network to determine the IAP that should function as the Virtual Controller at any time, and the Virtual Controller will move from IAP to IAP as necessary without impacting network performance. The Virtual Controller technology in Aruba Instant is capable of IAP auto discovery, 802.1X authentication, role-based and device-based policy enforcement, rogue detection, and Adaptive Radio Management (ARM).
This guide covers Aruba Mobility Controllers and is considered part of the foundation guides within the VRD core technologies series. This guide will help you understand the capabilities and options you have when deploying an Aruba Mobility Controller. This guide describes operating modes for the mobility controller, licensing, forwarding modes, logical and physical deployment, redundancy, and how to select the appropriate mobility controller based on scalability requirements. Version 9 includes information on the 7200 series controller.

I am new to aruba products. Can anyone explain the tunnel formation that is happening in master-local.
1. My AP is forming a PAPI tunnel with the master and then it checks the lms ip which is the local controller's IP.
2. Now my AP will it form PAPI tunnel at first with the local controller or is it GRE and then PAPI
Thank you in advance

This is a great document and all the VRDs are. My comment is this one document has the 600 series controller which are end of life/sale. I wounder if there is someone working on a newer version that replaces them with 700 series?
Providing wireless connectivity at remote sites has been a challenge for organizations with distributed locations, such as retail chains and K-12 school districts. These organizations need robust WLAN functionality,including voice and video optimization, high reliability, and strong security. They also need a solution that is affordable both to buy and to operate in a distributed environment. The solution must be able to be deployed rapidly, and configured and managed centrally. In addition to these requirements, certain organizations, like hotel operators, restaurant owners, retailers, and other distributed enterprises, must comply with data privacy regulations such as the Payment Card Industry (PCI), Data Security Standard, and HIPAA for healthcare. Ingeneral, these organizations need a feature-rich, enterprise-grade WLAN that can be deployed rapidly atgeographically-dispersed locations that have limited or no on-site IT resources.
The Aruba Instant architecture is designed to address these situations. Aruba Instant combines enterprise grade WLAN performance, security, and scalability with industry-leading ease-of-use and affordability. With Aruba Instant, the entire deployment process is automated, including zero-touch provisioning, firmware upgrades, and inventory management. You can deploy thousands of Aruba IAPs cost-effectively anywhere in the world with unprecedented speed and ease.
