    First of all, make sure you have following done: proper PKI setup to issue certificates for clients & trustpoints your wireless client has proper personal | machine certificate installed with corresponding private key your APs have a valid trustpoint from the same SSL chain of trust If you do not know How to import digital certificate to WiNG controller, follow the relevant article.

    Hi Bart,
    That guide addresses the use case where the WiNG AP/Controller is used as a Radius server and implements EAP-TLS as the authentication method. Of course, that would require you to add certificates to the AP/controllers that are working as Radius server. Usually, you won't use your wireless infrastructure to perform authentication specially in case of EAP-TLS. Not saying its not possible, but its just not done widely. 

    In your environment, do you have a Radius server or NAC perhaps that could be used to authenticate Domain computers/user using EAP-TLS? it would be more scalable and easier to maintain.

    Hi Ovais,

    Thanks for responding...

    Yes, we do have the radius server on the network.

    We actually moved a couple of steps forward since my post. as I managed to get a bit better documentation from extreme.

    The current issue is that the trustpoint file-sync command fails. Basically, the bundle has been loaded on to VX controller but the file has since failed.

    MKTVX1#show file-sync load-file-status
    Download of EAPTLS10 trustpoint is complete

    but the file sync fails

    AP08 failed 2021-11-25 11:28:01 3 MKTVX1 Error in loading trustpoint


    AP07 failed 2021-11-25 11:28:01 3 MKTVX1 Error in loading trustpoint


    AP26 failed 2021-11-25 11:28:01 3 MKTVX1 Error in loading trustpoint


    AP03 failed 2021-11-25 11:28:01 3 MKTVX1 Error in loading trustpoint



    Upload the guide I was fallowing for reference.

    Any idea please?

    Regards
    Bart
