Black List Clients



We have two BYOD mobile clients that are automatically blacklisted.

The reason is "User-Defined". This translates to"Manually Blacklisted". We are not manually blacklisting our clients.

<WARN> |AP 2EA-016@ stm| Blacklist add: 04:db:56:1f:01:0d: Reason: user-defined.

We are using version and 7210 controllers.


Any ideas on how to correct this issue.

Re: Black List Clients

Interesting.  Can you do a show audit-trail and see if someone added them in there manually?

Re: Black List Clients


What does the "show ap blacklist-clients" command say on the controller.  I've seen this differ from what's in the logs.

Re: Black List Clients

I ran the command, show audit-trail and discovered our security NAC was automatically blacklisting the clients. Thank you. for your help.

Re: Black List Clients

"user-defined" does not always mean a manual blacklist.  Please see the explanations here:
