    How to integrate the IAP cluster with AD, I need a solution to reduce the amount of SSID and make access rules based on user, the tools I have are AirWave and IAP Cluster with 305 APs, specifically 31 APs.

    generally you need a RADIUS server that provides this authentication against AD. Such RADIUS server can be Aruba ClearPass which is much more than a RADIUS server, you can configure all sort of access policies, check these video

    hi ariyap

    Thanks for the help, I'm going to look deeper into it, I don't think I have the budget to get the clearpass

    Hi Daniel,

    If it was an exam question, "ClearPass" would clearly be the answer, like ariyap said. That being said...

    In the AD you have a server role called NPS (Network Policy Server), which is in fact a RADIUS server, and obviously it's already integated in the AD. I've  worked with it before, and it's a whole lot more complicated that ClearPass (or maybe it's just that I have more experience with ClearPass than I do with NPS). It does have the advantage of being free, since you can install the role in any AD server.
