Certificate Request on Controller

Hello @ all,

 

I have an installation at a Customer with two 7205 controllers an aos version 8.1 with vrrp and database synchronisation.

all is working fine.

 

now my customer wants to use the internal radius server of the controller with connection to ms active directory user database for authenticaton the wireless clients with username and password.

 

however he want´s to install a certificate from a company ca instead of

using the dummy certificate of the controller.

 

where do we have to make the csr and install the certificate?

on both hw controllers or on the Mobilitylevel above?

or on both hw controllers and on the Mobilitylevel above?

 

best regards

"the internal radius server of the controller with connection to ms active directory user database"

 

There can only be one or the other.  If it is active directory, have the user install NPS and configure it as a radius server on the Controller.  No certificates on the Controller needed.

Re: Certificate Request on Controller

You should use an external RADIUS server....
