    Hi all,
    please help me understanding the CPPM behavior at the occurrence of a cluster member failure.
    I have a cluster of two CP-5K-HW with high density configured.
    One member, say the subscriber goes down and it is not replaced within 24 hours. 
    Now cluster breaks and publisher turn to be single with its 5k license.

    Whats happen if in the field I have, say, 7k device authenticated (and 802.1X re-auth not enabled at the access switches)?

    Please upgrade to a recent version as high-capacity-guest mode is no longer available in any of the current supported ClearPass versions. You should be running ClearPass 6.9 or newer; otherwise you will have known security vulnerabilities.

    What version are your running?

    Current versions of ClearPass changed to 'loose license enforcement' and you won't have issues, just get warnings that you are exceeding your licensing and/or platform capacity.
