X460-G2 & Policy Manager: End User Sessions Username missing

X460-G2 & Policy Manager: End User Sessions Username missing

Hi Guys,

I'm playing with EXOS 16.1, X460-G2 and Policy Manager / NAC ( NetSight 6.3) in my LAB and I found something odd.

When a user authenticates to any port of the X460-G2, in the Policy Manager Network Elements Tab -> Port Usage -> End User Sessions the Username shows as N/A (as Session ID).

In the old RED gear, it shows as expected but not on the new gear.

Looking at the X460-G2 console's, using a "show netlogin" the username is there...

When I added the switch to NAC Manager, it shows up the username with no problems.

I have customers with large B5's installed base, and some will now start using X450-G2/X460-G2, and many have no NAC, and use PM to find the username authenticated at ports.

Any ideas? Something still missing in this version?

Best regards,


Hi Stephen,

I got back to this issue now, because our long-term EOS customer started to refresh the old gear for X440-G2.

The same issue arises as happened in my lab... The xml-notification can't connect to the EMC (using the guide posted at the gtacknowledge)... The customer is running EMC and EXOS

In my lab I found the same issue: With the SAME config, on EXOS 21 it can't connect to EMC, but booting to the EXOS 22 it works fine.

The community and gtacknowledge posts said it works since EXOS 15, and I can't upgrade to EXOS 22 until the next customer maintenance window.

Any ideas?

I got the same thing when using IE. If the password was wrong you would get a 401 message.

Did you make sure you selected the correct VR when setting up the XML notifications?

I've already tried this tip, and was able to login, but got a "500 Internal Server Error" on Internet Explorer.

(I couldn't try with another browser, because of the customer's security policy).

Enabling the Verbose logging for OneView Web Applications, I can see a lot of logs, all coming from the Wireless Controllers, but nothing from the switch.

Maybe we have some Netsight server problem?

You can try going to the XML url in your PC browser and see if you can login with that user.


You will see a page like this:
