Hello,

Is it possible to use both LDAP and local authentication? We are running WING 5.8.6.

For example, the BYOD wireless network will connect to LDAP for authentication and the guest network will use the local radius to authenticate from guest passes generated.

Thanks

Hello Daniel,
WiNG 5 controllers can only have one radius policy mapped, but under the radius policy there is an Authentication parameter, which allows for default source (local or LDAP) and you can specify what the default source will be and add the WLANs and source (local or LDAP) for each one.

If additional assistance is required, please open a support case.

Hi all,

to elaborate a little on what Chris mentioned:
VX(config-radius-server-policy-RADIUS)#
radius-server-policy RADIUS
use radius-user-pool-policy LOCAL-AUTH
authentication data-source local ssid LOCAL-AUTH precedence 1
authentication data-source ldap ssid LDAP-AUTH precedence 2
use radius-group LOCAL-AUTH[/code]This will allow you to mix local and remote database.
In GUI you'll find it under Configuration - Services - RADIUS - Server Policy - Authentication

The setup looks pretty straight forward but I cannot get this to work for some reason. Anyone actually has this working?

what WiNG version are you running?

Also, see these articles:

If you still have an issue, share with us the RADIUS policy config.
