Captive portal authenticating against AD and SQL database



In our company we use two Aruba 3400 controllers with AP105 and AP61.


We are transitioning the authentication method, today we have Radius with SQL Authentication. We are implementing Active Directory authentication. So both methods (PAP for SQL and MSCHAPv2 for AD) should work during this period.


But the Captive Portal in ArubaOS 6.1.3 doesn't support MS-CHAP auth. On my reseaches, I found that version 6.2 implements this funcionality, is it true? I also have some concerns about the AP61 support, they will work with the new controller firmware?


Best regards!!

Hi Friend,


Yes. you can use AP 61 with AOS 6.2. it will support up to 6.3


Please go ahead and upgrade it to 6.2 it will support MSCHAP V2 also
