Clearpass web GUI not showing.

I am setting up 2 clearpass hardware 1 as publisher and 1 as subscriber. I have been following this guide and I am now in page 23. The problem is, I cannot open the the web UI even after things have been setup.


I did add licenses and  the clustering using the CLI but still the Web UI wont open. I check the time of both server and they seem to have sync with the NTP. Firewalls should all be ok as far as I know.

It would be hard to guess what is wrong from here. Hopefully you opened a case so they can troubleshoot.

Try to telnet to the server over port 80 and 443 to see if it's listening on the ports. Do a "service status all" in cli and confirm the admin-whateveritscalled process is running. Try restating that. Check firewalls in between. Open a case.

Are you able to SSH into the Box ?

Have you tried restarting the Box ?
Thank you

Yes, I can SSH on the box. Port 22, 80 and 443 are open. I have also restarted them several times.


We have 2 of these CP-HW-25K sitting in the corner for 2 years and only now that we installed these. So there's really no configuration on them . They still have this old version.

[]# show version

Policy Manager software version :
Policy Manager model number     : CP-HW-25K

I was a able to configure one as publisher and one as subscriber using CLI since I can't go to GUI.
