  • 1.  Aruba Central Instant EAP-PEAP RADIUS EAP Timeout

    Posted May 15, 2021 06:29 PM
    Hi Guys iam driving crazy to find a issue i normally don't have any issues with. I try to configure a very easy straightforward WPA2-Enterprise (EAP-PEAP) in an Aruba instant cluster managed by central. For some reason WPA2-Enterprise turns every time in an EAP time out issue in the ClearPass event logs. I configured this many times without issues and now iam struggling for about 8 hours (grrr).

    Error Code 9002 RADIUS Client did not complete EAP transaction

    I re-install anything out of frustrating. Re-install a new instant group in Aruba Central and re-install ClearPass to be sure. It's not a client side issue. Didn't had any issues with the ClearPass configuration before. I guess i do something wrong in the Aruba Central part because since i move to a new central account when the issue appear.

    ArubaOS Instant 8.6.0.9
    ClearPass 6.9.5
    IAP-325
    AP-505

    Find my config below.. Hope somebody have a clue...

    Update...

    By removing the NAS IP Address, disable the Dynamic RADIUS Proxy and add both access points directly into the ClearPass devices i got things worked.
    Not very suitable solution for larger production environments offcourse. Maybe i run into this known issue but i have to further investigate it.

    Update...

    Finally i figure it out... As always the solution was quite simple. I probably made the same mistake a long time ago.
    The solution was that some fields must be empty when configure the Virtual Controller IP on the same native vlans as the IAP's.
