    Posted Mar 17, 2015 10:45 PM

    Hi

     

    Im trying to figure out whether by using the controller alone  to perform a dynamic vlan assignment to users. My scenario is like below:

     

    1. I configured multiple ssid eg: Engineering (vlan10), ICT(vlan20), Business(vlan30)
    2. I want to use aruba internal db to create user account for Engineering, ICT,  Business users
    3. When engineering user want to connect to network, They need to connect to Engineering SSID then use their own username password which created in internal db. Then I want the user assigned to correct vlan. Same goes to ICT and Business.

    Is all these process possible by using the aruba controller?

    Please advice

     

    Regards

    Michael

    Hi,

     

    You can easily achive this with the following method.

    1. Create roles as per the need ( Engineer, TCT etc).

    2. Map VLAN-10 to Engineer role, VLAN-20 to ICT role and so on..

    3. Map these roles to each user accordingly in the internal database as shown bellow.

     

    To Map VLAN to a role :

    To map a role an user in internal DB :

    Hi Venu Puduchery

     

    I have tried it out, and below are the outcome:

    I created ssid for Engineering(vlan10), ICT(vlan20), Business(vlan30)

    When I connect to ssid Engineering and use ICT user account to login, I am able to login and will be assigned to ICT vlan

    Is there anyway to overcome this issue where when the above situation happens, the authentication will be rejected.

     

    Regards

    Michael

    Hi,

     

    I don't think it is possible with internal server, possible with CPPM. any way will try in my lab and comeback to you if I find any solution.
