First ClearPass installation: problems with wired mac authentication

    Dear community,

     

    today I made my first expierience with Aruba Clearpass.

    At first I would like to use a simple wired mac authentication configuration.

     

    If an endpoint has a special attribut, e.g. "VOIP" he will receive a special VLAN and the session will be authenticated on the switch port.

     

    I already created the roles, role mappings, profiles and a policy.

    In the access tracker we can see, that the client on the switch has been authenticated successfully and that the correct VLAN has been send to the switch: Radius Response: "Radius:Aruba:Aruba-User-Vlan 230"

    But on the switch we do not see the correct VLAN. Only the following:

     

    switch-stack-3# sh port-access 1/11 mac-based clients detailed

    Port Access MAC-Based Client Status Detailed

    Client Base Details :
    Port : 1/11
    Client Status : authenticated Session Time : 6 seconds
    MAC Address : 805ec0-1b84d3 Session Timeout : 0 seconds
    IP : n/a

    Access Policy Details :
    COS Map : Not Defined In Limit Kbps : Not Set
    Untagged VLAN : 1 Out Limit Kbps : Not Set
    Tagged VLANs : No Tagged VLANs
    Port Mode : 100FDx Auth Mode : User-based
    RADIUS ACL List : No Radius ACL List

    Auth Order : Not Set
    Auth Priority : Not Set
    LMA Fallback : Disabled

     

    The switch configuration looks like this:

     

    switch-stack-3# sh run | inc radius
    radius-server host 172.X.X.X key "secret"
    radius-server host 172.X.X.X dyn-authorization
    radius-server host 172.X.X.X time-window 600
    aaa authentication port-access eap-radius

     

    interface 1/11
    untagged vlan 1
    aaa port-access mac-based
    aaa port-access mac-based addr-limit 2
    aaa port-access mac-based addr-moves
    aaa port-access mac-based unauth-vid 999
    exit

     

    Has anybody an idea what could be wrong?

     

    Thanks and best regards

    Alex

    Hi Alex

     

    Which switches are you using here? When I last checked, even though HP have rebranded their switches as Aruba, you cannot use the Aruba VSAs to send back a VLAN.

     

    Can you change your enforcement profile to return the IETF:Tunnel-Private-Group-ID with VLAN 250 instead? You may also need to add RADIUS:IETF:Tunnel-Type=VLAN and RADIUS:IETF:Tunnel-Medium-Type=IEEE802.

     

    There is an excellent document that details a lot of this stuff here: https://support.arubanetworks.com/Documentation/tabid/77/DMXModule/512/Command/Core_Download/Default.aspx?EntryId=17690

    Hi Dave!

     

    Thanks for your feedback! That was exactly the problem. I use Aruba 2930F switches. But you are right, they are more HP than Aruba. :-)

     

    After I switched to RADIUS:IETF everything worked properly.

     

    The PDF is very nice! Thanks a lot!

     

    Best Regards.
