Role Derivation with MAC CACHING.

Hi Guys. 


Firts off , thank for take the time to read the post. 

I have a Captive portal with Mac Caching service for a college with Active directory, firts time a unknown device will be falling in the captive portal,  then is the user exist  and based in a Type_Of_User attribute in AD domain we can derivate many diferents rols and send them back to the controller, this works fine, but the next time a user get into the wifi network the one only role we get is Guest, I need to change the MAC ADDRESS for THE USERNAME to ask again if this username exist in the AD to derivate the role again but in MAC CACHING service. 


any suggestion guy ?    is possible to change the attribute MAC address for smaaccount in the MAC caching authentication source,  anybody has faced this scenario.. 


thanks sorry for my bad English.

So you want to check AD for every subsequent MAC authentication?

Hi Tim. 


yes, we need to derivate roles with Mac Caching service to maintain the same experience of role derivation like Guest Portal, this because there ara student, researchers, professors and many other type of users in the campus.
