Environment : ClearPass 6.0 and later versions


OnGuard Agent is always configured with the IP address of the ClearPass server from which it has been downloaded. The IP address of the server will be stored in agent.conf file. The agent.conf file is created once the OnGuard agent is installed on the client. If the ClearPass server is part of a cluster, then IP address of all the servers is stored in agent.conf file.

The agent.conf file can be manually edited to make it contact a different ClearPass server. The agent.conf file can be found in the following location:

  • Windows:       Program Files\Aruba Networks\ClearPassOnGuard\etc\agent.conf
  • MAC OSX:     Library/Application/Support/ClearPassOnGuard/agent.conf
