How to define VSA attribute length

Hi All,


I am Muthu. working for Nokia ( Formerly Alcatel-lucent).Planning to use

ClearPass Policy Manager  on CP-VA-500 platform


would like to know how to define the VSA attibute length to 2 bytes rather than standard 1 byte.


The attributes which we are going to use are given below it list atrtibutes name , value and type.

ATTRIBUTE       A-ESAM-PoL-Fwd-ID                 0x06A1  string

ATTRIBUTE       A-ESAM-PoL-Vp-ID                  0x06A2  integer

ATTRIBUTE       A-ESAM-PoL-Client-Type            0x06A3  integer

The above attributes have been validated in the Free radius server and it works fine. would like to know how to define and use them in Aruba clearpass.


Thanks in Advance,

I've not tried thie but, can't you just export the Nokia RADIUS dictionary from ClearPass to an XML file, add the new attributes to the file, then import the file with the new attributes.


And enable the Nokia RADIUS dictionary if it's not already enabled.

You Could use the type OctetArray in the dictionary to return hex values.

Do refer both the solutions in the below article and see if you get some direction with your requirement.
