Hello i was wondering what are the features that you can configure in clearpass but with non aruba swtiches neither aruba WLAN controller.
For example as far i know i can identify what devices is it, but on the controller and with taht information the clearpass can then put a rule with that.
But now how does this work with an cisco wireless controller? can they give the info to the clearpass? or how does this work?
What i want to know what can i do with a clearpass with ARuba and what i can do with clearpass but with NON aruba equipments
Is there a table taht can tell me this??
You won't get the Aruba-Device-Type classification but ClearPass has its own Device Fingerprints that are derived from HTTP headers, MAC OUIs and DHCP options.
The first step would be to add the ClearPass servers as DHCP relay addresses to the layer 3 interfaces of the clients and enable Endpoint Classification for each server under Server Configuration.
Are there things you cannot do on the 3rd party switches that you can do only with aruba with clearpass?
You can do full device classification without Aruba switches or controllers. ClearPass handles the profiling based on OUI and DHCP fingerprints.
Which collectors do you use on your super brandeis university deployment?
Which one were recommended by your aruba partner?
We use everything except OnBoard, ActiveSync, and OnGuard.
To asnwer your questions well i work in a arubanetworks partner. It just that im starting to study, practice Clearpass.
Clearpass is just another world that it doesnt matter if you know a lot of configuring mobility controllers or aruba deivces.
I hope this client picks clearpass. They are using Cisco Infraestructure
Hopefully ill know a lot of clearpass with the Clearpass essentials we just bough and also in the Airheads summit i already register on the clearpass course that prepares you for the ACCA
But for now i need your help guys and thanks! for asnwering my questions!!
Nice info and answers in this thread.
That said - it's quite a big question you give us Carlos :)
"What i want to know what can i do with a clearpass with ARuba and what i can do with clearpass but with NON aruba equipments"
Perhaps the first question you want to ask and answer yourself is:
* What do we want to use ClearPass for?
* How granulated authentication/authorization do we want?
* Which modules do we want to use?
I've had several customers that have no problem seeing the Guest part, and then a little more convincing needed for the next step which is BYOD. Here they usually don't want to go further than "if company owned PC then assign allowall roles/business vlan, non-company owned = byod-role/guest vlan".
This you can accomplish with anything that supports Radius.
