Re: What is "the Extensions service"

ClearPass Extensions is a new 3rd party integration framework.

Re: What is "the Extensions service"

We dont use the guest service. Clearpass is only used as NAC solution for wired and wireless users.

 

We had just upograded to 6.6.8 from 6.6.5. Since we have done this we are getting this error while backing up. I ahave now spoke to TAC. They emailed me this link - http://www.arubanetworks.com/techdocs/ClearPass/CP_ReleaseNotes_6.6.8/Content/WhatsNew/KnownThisRls.htm

 

Then I googled to find what this service is and landed in this page.

 

Now, How can we permamnetly disable this as we dont need it by the looks of it ?

 

And I hear extention was introduced in 6.6.0. But I had 6.6.5 running for a while and never has this error come up before. How does that happen ?

 

Regards,
