    I'm not aware of such a list, as it would be obsolete once it is published.

    A good start is the wired enforcement guide, with configuration guidelines for many of the big switch vendors (get it from But I have seen many different brands and types of switches supported as well. ClearPass is all standards based, so if you have a switch that adheres to the industry standards, and you can configure them for RADIUS/802.1X/MAC-Authentication/TACACS+(Admin), you are probably good to go. But as the list would be too long, I have not seen such.

    Are there specific switches that you need to know the support for? People reading here may share their experience.

    If you have urgent issues, always contact your Aruba partner, distributor, or Aruba TAC Support. Check for how to contact Aruba TAC. Any opinions expressed here are solely my own and not necessarily that of Hewlett Packard Enterprise or Aruba Networks.

    In case your problem is solved, please invest the time to post a follow-up with the information on how you solved it. Others can benefit from that.

    For Cisco, i'm using the series 2960X, 3850 and 9300 with Clearpass.
    Its up to you if want to integrate  EoL Cisco Hardware with Clearpass. In case of problems, Cisco TAC will not help.

    Best regards,

    Hi Andreas,

    The HPE/Aruba 2920 is supported for standard RADIUS authentication.

    In fact all switches that support 802.1x and use the RADIUS:IETF basics are working with  ClearPass. Switches that are not have 802.1x support can optional work via SNMP ClearPass OnConnect, but i never used that functionality.
