ClearPass Guest - device import & export with MPSK

  • 1.  ClearPass Guest - device import & export with MPSK

    Posted Apr 17, 2020 08:51 AM

    Hello,

     

    ClearPass 6.8.5

     

    Hopefully short and sweet... We have a bunch of laptops that we want to register in Guest and give MPSKs. This looks doable but we have a couple of questions:

     

    1) Can we supply our own MPSK values for each device as part of the import?

     

    2) If not is it possible to export the MPSK values that Guest creates after import? (We will need to do this so that the laptops can be configured)

     

    Thank you!

     

    Guy

    1) Yes
    2) You can export the values

    Thanks Victor,

     

    Actually I should have been more explicit - we were unable to see the MPSK value when exporting (and even when viewing device details within Guest), there was a setting in Guest Configuration > Guest Manager called "Password Display", I needed to tick this. I don't recall having this problem before and we have just upgraded to 6.8.5 so I wonder if this is a new thing. Anyway, it's ok now, apart from we another issue with the SMS and email (non!)auto-send, but I'll create a new topic for that....

    See this early topic:

    https://community.arubanetworks.com/t5/Security/WPA2-MPSK-import-from-XML/td-p/521162

     

    To get passwords visible it must be enabled in the guest manager. What is needed to made passwords visible in the password field when exporting an xml.

    I create some screenshots for you how to configure MPSK (basicly) with how to export and import devices with custom passwords.

    This is great, much appreciated thank you. One question - in the section where you configure MPSK on ClearPass there are 4 options for the deployment mode. You selected "Allow unique device Wi-Fi passwords", I have been choosing "Always generate unique device Wi-Fi passwords". Do you know what the difference is between those?

    Your welcome

     

    • "Always generate unique device Wi-Fi passwords", give any device a PSK, also when it device isnt used for wifi.
    • "Allow unique device Wi-Fi passwords" you have to select the checkbox for auto generate the PSK when creating a new device.
