    Hi,

    Can you confirm if a legacy CP-VA-5K automatically creates both the platform license and a 5000 access license during migration?

    Are existing legacy guest licenses also added to the access license numbers?

    Can legacy (onboard/onguard) licenses be installed on a new 6.7 installation or do they need to be manually converted by HPE support?

    Posted Dec 06, 2017 10:17 PM

    During the upgrade, the system will automatically create a platform activation key (PAK) for the virtual appliance.

     

    It will also install temporary 6 month licenses for all features. You can convert your legacy 5K licenses (as well as Guest, Onboard and OnGuard licenses) to their new licenses on My Networking Portal.

    In one of the webinars regarding ClearPass 6.7 the speaker mentioned sizing tools that was planned to be released.

    Where can that type of tools be found?

     

    Regards

    Missed Tim's reply before posting this question.  I'll convert my licenses via My Networking Portal.

     

    I'm having a tough time understanding if I need to convert my licensing after upgrading to 6.7.  When I try to reapply the license key as an access license, it gives me an error that the license key is not valid.  Should it have been automatic?  If so, I'll open a case with TAC.  If there's a conversion process, please advise.

     

    Thank you,

    Josh Bugbee

    During the upgrade, temporary licenses are installed. These are valid for 6 months. Sometime in that 6 month window, you need to convert your licenses. If you’re having issues with the self-service conversion in MNP, you can work with TAC.

    We are pleased to announce the immediate availability of ClearPass 6.7.1!  In addition to bug fixes, this release also includes several new features that our Engineering and QA team have worked tirelessly to include:

     

    • Improved TACACS+ license consumption model
      • TACACS+ is no longer consumed using the session-based model introduced in ClearPass 6.7.0. With only 100 Access licenses, a customer can now use TACACS+ for an unlimited number of network devices and/or administrators. Just add appliances to scale up based upon demands.
    • Ability to Rollback a Cumulative Patch
      • ClearPass now supports downgrades from major (pre-6.7 feature) and minor (NEW) releases, e.g. 6.7.1 -> 6.7.2 -> 6.7.1.
    • Support for SNMP IPv6 targets
      • ClearPass can now send SNMP traps to IPv6 enabled trap receivers.

    I'm running 6.7.3 in production and 6.7.4 on a dev cluster that services our building. Did have a funny when upgrading from 6.7.3 to 6.7.4 the master publisher at one level thought the secondary node was down but everything else kept working. Had to unbind the secondary and rebind it but that could have been me.

     

    There are quite a few fixes in the .234 releases which fixed issues for us.

    Hello,

    I am running a standalone C1000V (500 Virtual Appliance OVF)  version  6.6.10.106403 . My issue is that upgrading to 6.7 requires 1 TB of disk space. This seems rather large considering our requirements are small and we are only running at 15% with the current load on 6.6 . What is the life cyle plan for 6.6? Will Aruba continue to support 6.6 ? I  am having trouble justifying such a large space for a resource that is currently under utilized in our org. The release notes for 6.6 do not indicate a lifecycle or planned obsolecence so am I to think that it will be supported in the future?

    I would appreciate your input.

    So what are you using clearpass for in your institution? There are a lot of changes in 6.7 that make rolling out "stuff other than just sending back an Access-Accept"  a lot easier and feature rich. Just depends on your usage

     

    Also there are a batch of security fixes in there.

     

    Also don't forget the change in license model so you don;t have to buy more VMs to increase a cluster license count, but of you're only running a 500 then guess that doesn't matter.

     

    Really does depend on what you're using it for. 

     

    I know you're supposed to use 1TB thick provisoned ... you're only really using 50% of that as the disk has 2 partitions.

    Just checked with our systems people,  We started out using thin provisioned .. was a plan to thick provision it but apparently didn;t quite happen. On NetApps using NFS datastore there (possibly) isn't a thick provisioning option.

    The RN for patches 0-5 all contain a link that purports to offer a PDF version, but all it does is take the browser back to the same folder that has only the HTML version.

     

    I find it easier to use the PDF version - is there any possibility that it could be provided for (at least) 6.7 patch 7?

    Hello All,

     

    We are pleased to announce the immediate availability of ClearPass Policy Manager 6.7 / 6.8 Hotfix for Brazil DST changes.  Brazil has decided to not observe Daylight Savings Time this year.  This change requires a hotfix on all 6.7 or 6.8 systems to ensure that the clock is properly corrected to indicate the accurate time.

     

    Unlike previous hotfixes, this hotfix can be installed on 6.7 or 6.8 systems so there is only one patch for all supported versions.

     

    This patch is only required for customers operating servers in Brazil configured to use local time. 

     

    There is a Known Issue with this patch is that the time zone on the publisher will reset to US Pacific time on cluster after the reboot.  This can be reset and the time restarted.  Subscriber and stand-alone nodes are not impacted.

     

    The hotfix image has been posted to the support site (Aruba Support site). Posting to MNP and ASP will complete shortly.

     

    A big thanks and congratulations to the ClearPass Engineering, and ClearPass QA teams for reaching this milestone!

     

    Best regards,

    The ClearPass Team

    Hello All,

     

    We are pleased to announce the immediate availability of ClearPass 6.7.13!  In addition to bug fixes, this release also includes several new features that our Engineering and QA team have worked tirelessly to include:

     

    • Policy Manager
      • When Policy Manager is configured to use a SAML IdP for authentication through the UI, the logout logic will now include forceAuthn="true" in the subsequent SAML authentication request. If supported by the IdP, this will require the user to re-authenticate.

    As always, please take note of the ‘Changes of Behaviors’ section of the release notes (https://www.arubanetworks.com/techdocs/ClearPass/CP_ReleaseNotes_6.7.13/Default.htm).
