Configuring Clients

You can create entries in the Mobility Master’s internal database to authenticate client MAC Media Access Control. A MAC address is a unique identifier assigned to network interfaces for communications on a network. addresses. The internal database contains a list of clients along with the password and default role for each client. To configure entries in the internal database for MAC Media Access Control. A MAC address is a unique identifier assigned to network interfaces for communications on a network. authentication, enter the username and password for each client.

The following section describes how to configure clients entries in the internal database.

The following procedure describes how to configure the clients:

  1. In the Mobility Master node, navigate to the Configuration > Authentication > Auth Servers tab.
  2. In the All Servers section, select Internal. The Server > Internal section is displayed below the All Servers section.
  3. In the Server > Internal > Users tab, click + to open the Internal Server > Add New User section.
  4. Click Generate beside the User name and Password text boxes, for automatic username and password generation. Otherwise, enter the username and password in the text boxes.
  5. Select the role from the Role drop-down list.
  6. Enter the email address in the E-mail text box.
  7. Select the Enabled check box to activate the user entry on creation.
  8. Select the expiration duration mode from the Expiration drop-down list. Expiration represents the maximum time duration that a guest account is valid for.
    • If you selected duration, set the time for expiration in minutes.
    • If you selected time, set the date (mm/dd/yyyy format) and time (hh:mm format) in the Date and Time boxes.
  9. Click Submit at the bottom of the page.
  10. Click Pending Changes at the top of the page.
  11. In the Pending Changes window, select the check box indicating the pending change and click Deploy Changes.

The following CLI Command-Line Interface. A console interface with a command line shell that allows users to execute text input as commands and convert these commands to appropriate functions. command configures the clients from the Mobility Master node:

(host)[mynode] #local-userdb add generate-username generate-password role <user-role> mode {disable} expiry {duration <1+> | time <mm/dd/yyyy> <hh:mm>}

Scaling numbers for Mobility Controller Platforms

When a client (wired or wireless) terminates on a managed device, the MAC Media Access Control. A MAC address is a unique identifier assigned to network interfaces for communications on a network. address of the client is added to the user table. An IP user is created for the client when it obtains the IP address and communicates with the managed device. The maximum number of IP users allowed for each client or each MAC Media Access Control. A MAC address is a unique identifier assigned to network interfaces for communications on a network.  address (including IPv4 and IPv6 addresses) is 150% of the maximum MAC Media Access Control. A MAC address is a unique identifier assigned to network interfaces for communications on a network. user for a given platform.

Ensure that the scaling number for IP users does not exceed 150% of the maximum MAC Media Access Control. A MAC address is a unique identifier assigned to network interfaces for communications on a network. user for each platform. The managed device stops accepting IP users if the scaling number for IP users goes beyond 150% of the maximum MAC Media Access Control. A MAC address is a unique identifier assigned to network interfaces for communications on a network. users.
