PPTN confiogured now what?

O.k. I've just configured a 2930F pair of switches as a stack ... and then PPTN on a sete of ports talking to a mobility controler running

looking at the switch port with a device connected to it

xb-as-2930-1(eth-2/1)# sh mac-address 2/1

Status and Counters - Port Address Table - 2/1

MAC Address VLANs
----------------- ------------
4409b8-1ee4bb 4094

Where 4409.... is a Chromecast 4K device wired interface.


on the mobility controller

(arubadev2) #show tunneled-node state

Tunneled Node State
IP MAC port state vlan tunnel inactive-time
-- --- ---- ----- ---- ------ ------------- ec:eb:b8:2e:8d:cb 2/1 complete 4094 102 1



So now what ? Should I have expected to see the chromecast mac address on the mobiliy controller?  ... something appears in clearpass ?


Didn;t configure the example roles as I've got ones defined on the controller.

o.k. helps if you configure the wired AAA  authentication component. Can n ow see the device mac address appearing in clearpass. Its sending an access-request back with the wrong stuff in it, but at lest its breathing!

Re: PPTN configured now what?

Next question, if the device is on  a switch connected to a vlan defined as part of a per port tunneled node which also exists on the mobility controller but doesn't have an L3 interface, am i correct in thinking that the clearpass access-accept packet just needs to send back a local vlan value that is L3 routed on the mobility controller and the device at the other end will get an Ip address assigned from that VLAN ?
Ah! from the  document

With tunneled-node, the client device’s VLAN is assigned and enforced by the controller. In a tunneled-node only deployment, no client device access networks need to be configured at the edge switch layer.

So all I do need to do is assign device to correct vlan on controller

Intention here is to have a wired airgroup device connected to the switch visible by wifi airgroup devices connected via the same contoller

Re: PPTN configured now what?

o.k. so with a bit of clearpass "tweaking" I now have a chromecast video device connected to a wired port on a 2930F that is sitting in the same vlan group as another wifi based  chromcast device ... can't see it yet on my iphone ... but major step in right direction
