MGMT and Data Port in ClearPass

Hi Experts,


Good Day!


I would like to ask what are the traffic passing in the MGMT and DATA Port in ClearPass?

Please check the Service Routing Technote, that is available from


My personal advice would be to just use the management port, and only use the data port after you read and understood the Technote. ClearPass works fine with just a single interface, and having just one interface keeps your design simple in most cases.


In short, when you enable both ports, all outgoing traffic will originate from the data-port, unless it is local for the management port subnet, or if there is a management route that can be set on the command-line only.

If you have urgent issues, please contact your Aruba partner or Aruba TAC (click for contact details).
