    Hi folks,

    Not sure where to post this since it touches all of the above but basically I noticed when adding a radius server in Aruba Central for an ArubaOS switch it gives you the option to say where the radius server ClearPass - see screenshot.  

    What affect does this have on the switch? and if not on the switch what's the benefit of defining this in Central? 

    The documentation did not provide any details. 

    Thank you!

    From what I remember, you would need to enable this if you are using downloadable user roles. See here for the documentation on this piece: Configuring RADIUS Server Settings on AOS-S Switches

    And also here for explanation on the DUR side of that option: Configuring Downloadable User Role

    If you’re configuring a 2940 switch , flagging the
    radius service as being clearpass allows you to set up device fingerprinting o the switch. Defining server as clearpass tells the switch which server(s) to upload discovered data to

    Might be a reason
