Configuring ClientMatch

Use the following procedures to disable or re-enable ClientMatch, and upload a Rules-Based ClientMatch update package.

Enabling and Disabling ClientMatch

ClientMatch is enabled by default. The procedure to disable and re-enable ClientMatch varies, depending upon whether your deployment consists of multiple managed devices managed by a Mobility Master, or whether your APs are all associated to a stand-alone controller.

Mobility Master Deployments

The following procedure describes how to enable or disable the 2.4 GHz Gigahertz. and 5 GHz Gigahertz. radio settings for an AP:

  1. In the Managed Network node hierarchy, navigate to the Configuration > AP Groups page.
  2. Select the AP group from the AP Groups table.
  3. Click the Radio tab below the AP Groups table to display the AP radio settings.
  4. Expand the Client Control section.
  5. Click the Client match checkbox to enable or disable both 2.4 GHz Gigahertz. and 5 GHz Gigahertz. radio settings. Click Submit.
  6. Click Pending Changes.
  7. In the Pending Changes window, select the check box and click Deploy changes.

For more information on managing 2.4 GHz Gigahertz. and 5 GHz Gigahertz. radio settings, see 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz Radio RF Management .

Stand-alone Controller Deployments

For stand-alone controllers that do not have any associated managed devices, the ClientMatch feature is enabled and disabled in the ARM Adaptive Radio Management. ARM dynamically monitors and adjusts the network to ensure that all users are allowed ready access. It enables full utilization of the available spectrum to support maximum number of users by intelligently choosing the best RF channel and transmit power for APs in their current RF environment. profile used by the AP, as described in Configuring ARM Profiles. Although default ClientMatch settings are recommended for most users, advanced ClientMatch settings can be configured using rf arm-profile commands in the command-line interface.
