ArubaOS Mobility Controller XML-API issue

  • 1.  ArubaOS Mobility Controller XML-API issue

    Posted 7 days ago

    I am trying to use XML-API to integrate our external captive portal and I found an odd behavior.
    When I send message that should generate an error in response I am getting anyway OK.
    For example

    xml=<aruba command="user_authenticate">



    In controller log i see the correct error
    Feb 22 22:27:32, authmgr[3792]: <124030> <3792> <INFO> |authmgr| Received XML API cmd=user_authenticate, agent= IP=
    Feb 22 22:27:32, authmgr[3792]: <124004> <3792> <DBUG> |authmgr| IP=, MAC=00:00:00:00:00:00, name=''
    Feb 22 22:27:32, authmgr[3792]: <124004> <3792> <DBUG> |authmgr| auth='cleartext', role='', tout=0, vers='1.0'
    Feb 22 22:27:32, authmgr[3792]: <199802> <3792> <ERRS> |authmgr| ecp.c, ecp_api:357: ecp_api: validate_client failed for mac 00:00:00:00:00:00 ip
    Feb 22 22:27:32, authmgr[3792]: <124827> <3792> <WARN> |authmgr| XML command=user_authenticate (0) from agent IP= result=Error, error=''

    Any idea why is it?

    Open a TAC case. i had a similar issue a while ago with the API and aaa-test-server and it was a bug.

    I do not believe many customers use the APIs but I use the ClearPass API quite a bit.
