I have 3 doubts in which I needed you to help me
-I have a vx9000 installed with Nsight. Could I export the Nsight database to be treated by third-party software? Would it be exported from here?
-And on the other hand, I'm looking to replace Nsight with ExtremeGuest and I needed to know what captures one and the other. To know what I lose if I remove Nsight and install E-Guest. E-Guest I have not installed yet. Is there any comparison between these two platforms? Or some more explanatory document than the datasheet to see what each one specifically captures?
- And finally in the Extreme Guest specifications box, the part that says "user records in the database". Does it refer to 2 million users or 2 million user records? If a record refers for example when a client connects, another record when this same client enters a web, another record when changing web, etc. Or simply the client connects and whatever he does for E-guest is a single record.
E-guest also register unconnected customers, right?
Following is guidance to your last two points.
There is no comparison table as the two products N-Sight and ExtremeGuest are not comparable products. N-Sight is a visualizing and network statistics and events product for wireless where as ExtremeGuest allows you to manage guest access. Someone already posted a link for you on past question you had for docs - here is the link again: Is there any documentation available for E-GUEST (ExtremeGuest)?
Regarding the last point, the number of records in that table you are referring to is Unique MAC addresses and not record of user visits. Also, ExtremeGuest does not track user website visits so pages visited do not consume any records. ExtremeGuest focuses on providing network access to guests with their devices. Take a look at the material in the link above.
I had heard that the E-guest registered the web visits of the clients. I have read the user manual and effectively E-Guest is not designed for that. Do you know any platform that does this?
Nsight comes to show a record of the most visited websites so I was interested in being able to manage the database with another application because I understand that if it is able to show the top of web visited by the client, it must have registered in its tables the web accesses of each client.
Thanks and regards.
I have already installed ExtremeGuest, I have enabled the database, enabled ExtremeGuest server and introduced the licenses.
On the other side I have a VX9000 with a Wi-Fi with authentication through captive portal and radius inside the controller.
I have followed the E-guest configuration manual and have reached the part where the vx9000 synchronization with ExtremeGuest is configured by using the following command within the vX9000 profile:
# eguest-server 1 host "ExtremeGuest IP address"
With this command I see that nothing happens in ExtremeGuest.
Is it necessary to configure the following steps that appear in the manual?
In the manual it states that I have to configure an AAA policy on the vx9000 pointing to ExtremeGuest, assign this AAA policy to a wlan and also create it in ExtremeGuest.
I understand then that all the configuration that I have in the VX9000 is not going to be used and I have to configure it again in ExtremeGuest.
I do not understand this part of the manual.
I would appreciate your help.
For the part of radius redirection, I have done it on some occasions pointing to a radius mounted on a Windows server domain controller using the following AAA policy
On the VX9000 I can create this policy by pointing to the ip of the ExtremeGuest and configuring a key. But in ExtremeGuest, at the web interface level I do not see where to create the radius. I only have three possible configurations within the AAA section (Autorization, Group and Network). Also within Autorization it indicates that I do not have any WLAN or SSID and it does not let me create it either. In the Wlan SSID drop-down there is nothing.
There is a section of networks in ExtremeGuest that according to the manual I understand that it is to create the networks of the different delegations where I have wifi? Ask to enter a password. What does this password refer to?
On the other hand, when configuring in my VX9000 the redirection to the ExtremeGuest machine, I have not migrated the rf-domains tree that I understand would be here:
I am not sure that I have migrated anything or the synchronization has not been done...
Sorry for asking so much but I'm a little lost...
Take a look: https://gtacknowledge.extremenetworks.com/articles/Q_A/Is-there-any-documentation-available-for-E-GU...
yes. I am following "ExtremeGuest Server Deployment Guide". But after entering the command # eguest-server 1 host "ExtremeGuest IP address" on my VX9000 nothing is synchronized with the ExtremeGuest machine. The Management Tree is not synchronized, there is no synchronized wlans or ssid from the vx9000 to extremeguest ... There I am stuck.
could you share your running config from the VX controller, please (just remove any sensitive info like passwords/secrets and such)?
Can it even reach your EGuest server? The tree sync is happening over HTTPS (VX --> EGuest). Also once you initiate the sync, you should re-login to EGuest to reflect the changes. Which version are you running on both VX and EGuest?
But if this problem can come from the firmware version I will have no choice that to update.
I have attached to dropbox some debug eguest entries. In one of them there is a communication error with Eguest server, but eguest server is accessible by https ok...
