    Hello All, 

    our support of Aruba clearpass is ending soon which was provided by a reseller. we are not planning to extend it but there are couple of months in between until we implement a new wifi solution. 
    My question is what happens if support is ended, can we still use aruba clearpass for different features like MAC-Authentication, web based user registration and authentication etc or it completely stops working? 
    is there a risk to service if we don't renew support with reseller?

    I am under the impression that access will still work but we will not be able to make configuration changes or get updates etc but I might be wrong. Thank you in advance.

    for sure clearpass can operate without support service.
    I take it that your clearpass has perpetual licenses right?
    Support services will allow clearpass to be upgraded to the later version, patching and also to download onguard posture info, profiling signature and of course access to TAC 24x7
