Dropping EAPOL and enabling Handle EAPOL-logoff
12-04-2017 01:10 PM
We recently noticed a large number of error syslog messages coming from our Aruba controllers. One in particular, "Dropping EAPOL packet sent by station" appears to be related to EAPOL logoffs per the following article:
I would like to silence syslog messages that are not network impacting. Our users do not seem to be having any issues when these messages are generated, so I would like to know what the impact is when enabling the knob "Handle EAPOL-logoff".
Does enabling this knob simply turn on the handling of EAPOL logoff messages, thus silencing the log messages we are seeing?
By enabling it, does it impact the user experience at all, or is it transparent to them?
Thank you for any clarification!
