Re: ClearPass 6.7 Releases

So what are you using clearpass for in your institution? There are a lot of changes in 6.7 that make rolling out "stuff other than just sending back an Access-Accept"  a lot easier and feature rich. Just depends on your usage

 

Also there are a batch of security fixes in there.

 

Also don't forget the change in license model so you don;t have to buy more VMs to increase a cluster license count, but of you're only running a 500 then guess that doesn't matter.

 

Really does depend on what you're using it for. 

 

I know you're supposed to use 1TB thick provisoned ... you're only really using 50% of that as the disk has 2 partitions.

Just checked with our systems people,  We started out using thin provisioned .. was a plan to thick provision it but apparently didn;t quite happen. On NetApps using NFS datastore there (possibly) isn't a thick provisioning option.

Re: ClearPass 6.7 Releases

The Release Notes are no longer available as PDF?

The RN for patches 0-5 all contain a link that purports to offer a PDF version, but all it does is take the browser back to the same folder that has only the HTML version.

 

I find it easier to use the PDF version - is there any possibility that it could be provided for (at least) 6.7 patch 7?
