The longer-range plan is to make fairly radical changes -- I'm brand new here, and am dealing with an interlocking set of broken things which have to be fixed in order...We want to use mpsk, but have been told we need to upgrade off of 8.3 to implement it. We have 135 AP-105Hs in dorms that can't be updated, so I'm in the process of planning to replace those with 205Hs off of ebay (the out-of-cycle refresh of 30% of our installed APs is a budget killer!)When our aruba partner implemented eduroam 3 years ago, they got the SP to work but didn't understand what the IdP was supposed to do and never realized that it's not set up at all. I'm trying to learn enough about it so that I can get the IdP working without breaking the SP, and I already know that I want to use eap-tls. Every side-by-side comparison will tell you that implementing client certificates are a huge complicated thing, but I'm thinking that any process that works reliably is infinitely less complicated than this frustrating mess. According to airwave, at the moment I've got 108 clients stuck in mcUsers-logon (three of them have been there since 6-Oct) and 159 stuck in mcPublic-logon (one since 5-Nov). When you tell users "log into the cpg web interface and just continuously remove and add your MAC address until it magically starts working" the users look at you like you are a crazy idiot. And I certainly feel like an idiot saying it!
Eduroam does not work for guests who are not from other eduroam institutions. We are planning on using eduroam in addition to our guest portal & SSID. We will also likely use that guest SSID for onboarding too.
