What is CPPM role download and how to configure it on the controller
CPPM the central device to manage all security policies in a controller deployment; the controllers will merely enforce those policies.
CPPM RADIUS will provide the role name at user authentication. The authenticator switch or controller can request for the role details if the role does not exist. Users are then assigned to the newly defined role. CPPM RADIUS will provide the role name at user authentication. The authenticator switch or controller can request for the role details if the role does not exist. Users are then assigned to the newly defined role.
Role download is can be triggered in two ways:
Aruba-CPPM-Role VSA: When user does a full-authentication and received a role-name in this VSA, a role request is sent to the CPPM for this role.
Cached downloadable role: This applies only to HA-failover scenarios with dot1x-wpa2. During the first full-authentication, as soon as the role-name is received through the VSA, it is marked for caching, instead of the next-derived role. On HA-failover and user-creation, when the cached role is recovered, is found to be a downloadable role that is not present on the controller, a role request is sent for this role-name
