XOS Fabric attach with Policy - I-SID remains on switch after disconnect

Hi Guys,

the advantage of Fabric Attach is that you don't have to configure your VLANS on the uplinks AND that if there is no I-SID, no VLAN will be active on the uplink, thus making your broadcast domain smaller.

All good.

Now lets get Extreme Control (NAC) into place here. With policy you can assign a VLAN and I-SID (NSI) to a port based on X an Y condition.

Also very good!

But when the client disconnects, the I-SID to VLAN mapping remains on the switch!
=> You might ask: what's the point of having Fabric Attach?

I am probably missing some configuration piece (some timer ?) where the I-SID to VLAN mapping will disappear and the VLAN is no longer available on the switch. (test setup is with just 1 client on the switch).

Anyone idea's on this?

Thanks!

Kind regards,

Jasper
