ClearPass Guest session limit and lifetime problem

    We are using Aruba Central for guest captive portal and ClearPass for the Radius server.

    I created some guest account in ClearPass Guest with lifetime and session limit.


    I purpose that when the user login with the guest account, ClearPass would count the session to prevent the session is over the limit, and the expire time should be updated with the lifetime.

    What should I do to make this work? Do I need to set the enforcement Polices?

    yes you need to have the logic in your enforcement policy, also ensure you have RADIUS accounting enabled.
    you can create MAC auth and MAC caching service using the service template "Guest Authentication with MAC Caching" and you'll see how the enforcement profiles that gets created and you can test it out.  look out for these enforcement profiles, gg is the prefix i chose using the  service template 

    gg MAC Caching Session Limit,         
    gg MAC Caching Do Expire,               
    gg MAC Caching Expire Post Login,      
    gg Guest MAC Caching     

    If my post was useful accept solution and/or give kudos.
