Microsoft surface clients with constant reconnects
01-29-2019 02:15 PM
I've noticed in Clearpass Insight we've got a few Microsoft Surfaces (according to CPPM) that are constantly reconnecting to our Aruba APs. They're using MAC authentication and we can see them reconnecting nearly once a second. We typically see roughly 70k unique devices per day across 3800 APs, but these 4 Surfaces are generating the most MAC authentications. Not seeing anything out of the ordinary for these devices in Airwave.
We're not seeing this with any other devices. Has anyone else seen this happen?

Yep, just saw at one of my customers a Surface also doing MAC auth every second pretty much.
What is weird is that it seems to idle timeout lol
