Assigning RF Detection Profiles to Controllers


An RF Detection profile can provide configuration for any of these devices:

  • Rogue devices—Identify a device as a rogue by adding the MAC address to the rogues list. All automatic actions taken against rogues will be applied to devices on this list.

  • Neighbor devices—To identify friendly devices, such as non-Juniper Networks access points in your network or a neighboring network, add the MAC address to the neighbors list.

  • Devices you want blocklisted—Identify devices you want banned from the network by adding the MAC address to the blocklist.

  • SSIDs you want blocklisted—Identify SSIDs you want banned from advertising on the network by adding the MAC address to the SSID list.

Before you begin, you need at least one configured RF Detection profile. For directions, see Creating and Managing RF Detection Profiles.

To assign an RF Detection profile to one or more controllers:

  1. Under Views, select one of these options: Logical View, Location View, Device View or Custom Group View.Tip

    Do not select Dashboard View, Datacenter View, or Topology View.

  3. In the Tasks pane, expand Wireless, expand Profiles, and then click RF Detection.

    The Manage RF Detection Profiles page appears, displaying the list of currently configured RF Detection profiles.

  4. Select a RF Detection profile from the list and then click Assign.

    The Assign RF Detection Profile wizard opens, displaying a list of wireless devices. The wizard consists of three sections, Device Selection (selected), Profile Assignment, and Review.

  5. From Device Selection, select one or more controllers or controller clusters from the list. If you select Wireless Network, all controllers below that selection are also selected. Tip

    Controller clusters are created in mobility domains—see Creating a Mobility Domain for Wireless LAN Controllers.

  6. Click either Profile Assignment or Next.

    The controllers you selected are listed on the Profile Assignment page of the wizard in the Assignments list.

  7. Select one or more of the listed controllers for assignment and then click either Assign to Device for a controller or Assign to Cluster for a controller cluster,

    The Assigned To column of the Assignments list reflects the new assignment.

  11. Click OK.

    The RF Detection profile name appears on the Manage RF Detection Profile page with the assignment state Pending Deployment. Deploy the pending RF Detection profile following the directions in Deploying Configuration to Devices.
