    Posted Jan 14, 2022 01:35 AM

    Hi All, 

    I have an occasional issue of browser hanging / freeze after submit user name/password.  grey out  "processing" button.  Sometime this will eventually go to next step  after 10+ minutes. other times never proceed to next step.  This is random and will happen in all OS devices.  This will happen about 25% of time,  rest work quick and onboard properly.   

    TAC had a look at configs and logs but couldn't find any  issues.

    Onboard setup is with google SLDAP. 

    anyone else observe this ?   Any pointer will help. 
    thanks in advance

    I would run a trace from the browser, with the developer tools, so you can see what requests are done and at what point in the process the delays are introduced.
    Then, I would run a packet capture on the ClearPass server to see if the authentications to your SLDAP server are going out as expected, or if there might be misconfigured servers or so.

    Thanks Herman,   
    I will run a trace from the browser and see. 

    I assume SLDAP authentication part is working since I can see certificate generated for user/device on Clearpass as soon as hit login on client browser.

    Last Sunday night installed software update patch to upgrade v 6.10.2 to 6.10.3.  Since then hanging issue disappeared magically.   Nothing on release notes linking issue I had.  Onboarded about nearly 100 devices so far and working well.
