Associating Enforcement Points with an Infranet Controller Using the UAC Manager

Before you begin associating enforcement points with an Infranet Controller, ensure the following:

  • The administrator must have proper privileges for associating enforcement points with an Infranet Controller in the current domain.
  • The Infranet Controller and the enforcement points should be managed by NSM in the current domain.
  • The connection status of the devices to be associated should be “up” in NSM.

To associate enforcement points with an Infranet Controller:

  1. In the NSM navigation tree, select UAC Manager > Infranet Controller. The Infranet Controller workspace appears.
  2. Select the stand-alone Infranet Controller or the Infranet Controller cluster to which you need to associate enforcement points.

    Note: The Infranet Controller is deployed either as a standalone device or as a cluster (active-active cluster mode or active-passive cluster mode).

  3. Click the Add Enforcement Point button. The Select Enforcement Points dialog box appears with the list of enforcement points managed by NSM but not yet associated with the Ex-series switch.
  4. If the Infranet Controller is deployed as a active-active cluster, select the cluster member.
  5. Select the Ex-series switch to which the association has to be made, and move it to the Selected Enforcement Points list.
  6. Enter the RADIUS secret shared between the Infranet Controller and enforcement points.
  7. Select the Location Group the enforcement points must belong to in the selected Infranet Controller. Each enforcement point can be associated with only one Location Group available in the Infranet Controller.
  8. Enter the Infranet Controller port number to which the enforcement point should communicate. The default port is 1812.
  9. Enter the IP address that should be used for RADIUS communication. If you do not specify an address, the enforcement point’s management IP address is used by default. You have the option to select the IP address of the RADIUS communication server only if you select a single enforcement point because the IP address to communicate with an Infranet Controller is unique.
  10. Select Use Load Balancer with IP Address if the Infranet Controller is load balancer administered. The IP address of the Load Balancer is then used as the Radius Server in the EX-series switch configuration.
  11. Select Run “Update Device” task to push configuration changes on both the Infranet Controller and enforcement points. The configuration status of the enforcement points changes to Managed, InSync.
  12. Select Run “Summarize Delta Config” task to ensure the association between the Infranet Controller and enforcement point in the application database. The configuration status of these devices becomes Managed, NSM Changed.
  13. Click OK. The selected enforcement points are listed under the associated Infranet Controller.
