Working in a deployment i haven't setup myself. In th Endpoints database I notice quite a number of entries with Static IP TRUE.
How does ClearPass determine an entry has a static IP / sets that attribute to True? I did notice that some layer 3 devices have the read ARP table option flagged, can that be it?
The weirdest ones are where Static IP is TRUE, but there is no IP shown at IP Address. Is that logical somehow or probably something buggy?
as far as i know ClearPass defines an IP to be static in case it does not "see" a corresponding dhcp request.
That is my understanding as well. Also information from the switch itself via RADIUS Accounting or SNMP.
It makes sense although I had a hard time understanding in my environment how I would end up with Static IP true, but no known IP address. The environment heavily relies on DHCP and the places where static IPs are used there is ARP table reading to determine IP addresses.
Still I think I found some corners of the network where the DHCP requests remain local. So that probably is the cause of the entries.
